Hello Meltingpot Readers,
Pardon my absence on Monday, but I was 135,000 feet up in the air for most of the day and am still getting readjusted to staggering levels of humidity, Eastern Standard Time, not having all of my meals prepared by hired help, and a seriously neglected house overrun by spiderwebs and dust. Oh the joys of returning to reality.
Thanks for all of the great comments on my last post about the Virgen de Regla, I will get back to you all, but right now I must plead overwhelming-ness. But of course I will not leave you without something to ponder.
A friend of mine, who is a wonderful poet, writer and mom, has up and left her regular life in the suburbs of Philadelphia to move to Brazil...with a newborn son, a toddler and a 5-year old! And she's decided to blog about her adventures at The Golden Papaya. Please check it out and give her lots of support as she's in for a wild ride.
I'm looking forward to see how things turn out for her as I still fantasize about doing something like that. But I doubt. Do I have the cojones to just try on another culture, language and country? With my family in tow? Would you? I guess there's still time.
