4) Olive Outside a bar under A green Heineken umbrella, An old woman, Tattered purple coat. Sunglasses and a gray hat. I am back in Nyack. My year in India is over. So is the covert love affair. I can't think of India or Sahaya Mary; I cannot bear their loss. Up Main Street past the bar and The drifter alone at the table. "Come here," she soothes. "You have a story to tell." I sit and tell her how I would have married Sahaya Mary, I Really would have And lived in India And spoken Tamil And had meaning And had intensity in my life. She nodded her head As if expecting every word. When I stood up, I had returned, I had returned To America. 5) Wings It is true, With you I soar ... read more

After nearly 3 and a half months living and working here at the South Pole, my flight back to Christchurch leaves in 3 days. Believe it or not - I'm going to miss being here quite a bit. It was far better an experience than I'd anticipated and I've had a blast. Everyone working down here is great - and hopefully I'll be able to keep in touch with the friends I've made here for a long time. Indeed, if I have the opportunity to find employment for my wife down here, I'd be happy to winter next year. I don't even think I can begin to list the "first time" experiences I've had here. They're nearly daily. Yesterday I marshaled one of the LC-130 Hercules aircraft in on landing. It was utterly exhilarating, standing there ... read more

And Tyler Takes a Day Off. From working 7 days a week, for the last 1.5 months, man, does it feel AWESOME to take a day to yourself, for yourself. I baked cookies! I cleaned! I fixed our washing machine, hooked up our dryer, hooked up a TV and DVD player, and cooked a kickass dinner. AND, I am succesfully overcoming all the challenges I had last winter, working at Chocpaw. I am incredibly proud of myself. I have the respect of all whom I work with, Im a kick-ass guide, and Im starting to make money. Its been incredibly challenging to face the anxieties that I created for myself last winter here, and to overcome them and become a stronger person. Im learning to listen to myself above all else, to not doubt myself when ... read more

I know I haven't sent anything in a long while. It's been a whale of a semester. So much change, so much growth... why does growing seem to always hurt so much? Here is an essay for public essay One night a couple of weeks ago, I made an emergency beer run to Tops. I had never been to Tops before, and so after grabbing the beer and returning to the front to pay, I was shocked to find that none of the check out lines were open. There were no cashiers, there were no customers, there were no high schoolers placing the items in bags. There was not a soul in sight. After prowling up and down the main corridor, I realized that the grey machines by the entrance had replaced the traditional check out ... read more

Russell and I went around a billion churches. After we went to the Repperbaum in hopes of getting some sex. We got no sex. Instead we got two bottles of wine and drank them like tramps outside a music vnue. Hamburg is expensive!!! Russell and saw many a prostitute and then he got so drunk i had to drag him home. In the middle of the night he was sick all over the floor, and I had to clean it up. Bless, arent I a lucky girl!!! Got to go, no money for internet!!!! ... read more

A pale light seeped into the cramped bedroom from under the door. There was just enough light for John to see Patricia's pale, drawn face, if he were to have looked. But John didn't look. John stood stiffly in the middle of the room, hands on the back of his desk chair, staring out the window into the blackness. "What are we going to do now?" he asked. After a moment, Patricia, nearly hidden beneath the comforter said, "I don't know. I don't want this to happen any more than you do." John turned around slowly and stood facing the bed. He peered towards the outline of Patricia's face. Trying with all his might to be calm for her, he said, "Baby, I know you tried. I know." Soft sobbing came from the bed and John ... read more

This is a Love Marriage, not an Arranged Marriage I spent my junior year abroad in the Indian city of Madurai, located in the southern state of Tamil Nadu. Whereas in America my dirty blond hair and unspectacular looks often made me feel unseen, in India I stood out. Every time I walked down a crowded road children and adults alike would stop and stare. I was an outsider; no matter how much I tried to fit in, I was a “Vellicari,” a rich white man. In Madurai, I learned Tamil, took Indian cooking lessons, and prayed to Indian Gods at Indian temples, but I knew, as many immigrants must, that I wasn’t fully assimilating. For the first time I felt my race, my class, and my ethnicity. I also realized that as a Westerner, ... read more
