humanity is at a crucial moment... to continue to embrace each other in all its differences or to deny what and who we really are. who are we? are we peace or are we vision? are we love or are we seperation? are we together or are we apart? this poem is called the American Hot Dog the american hotdog the american dream all of us together or so it seems embrace the world with all of its variety discrace the world in all of its division the American Hotdog taste so sweet can we all sit down and have a treat can we all sit down on common ground and embrace our differences in the wake of transformation can we agree not to agree and sit and hug and we sit still for a moment ... read more

Let's see how this works... Right now I'm packing, I haven't started on my journey yet-- or I guess I'm always on one? I've been saying all of the last goodbyes I can squeeze in today. I'm mainly putting this first blog in place to create a base list so it will automatically send my updates to you guys! (I think) However, let me take this pilot blog as an opportunity to thank to everyone for all of your support. My family and friends, you are truly too good to me. All I can say is the cards, flowers, phone calls, long walks, hospital visits.... and the FOOD displayed your love in a tangible way for me. It was humbling to say the least. Enough with the mushy stuff.... blogs of Peruvian babies to come soon! ... read more

Atlanta; home of the Olympic Games (1996), home of Coca Cola, a huge sprawling city known as the Capital of the South and the home of the incredible and inspirational Martin Luther King Jr;. We were only passing through on our road trip back to Memphis where we had to return the damaged car and face whatever consequences lay ahead. Before arriving at Danielle’s; our next couch-surf host, we stopped off at the Martin Luther King Jr National Historic Site. This comprised of his birth home, his grave and a museum dedicated to his work - all in the same block as the Ebenezer Baptist Church he used to preach at. Unfortunately we only got just over an hour before the museum shut, but it was still well worth the visit and we wish we could ... read more

This will probably be my last entry for the blog (is anyone even checking this anymore?!) and I'm writing from my new office! Classes have officially started. I've met my professors. I've started reading. I've learned my vocabulary is insanely small and I combine words to make up new ones (which the one time came out as a real word with a waaaay different meaning than the made up word I was trying to say). My other best friend, Shaun, is back in town so I'm happy about that (not that I'll see him a whole lot, but it's gotta be more than twice a year, right?!). I've questioned about 100 times if this is really what I want to be doing, and keep telling myself I'm here for a reason, but I'm in all honesty ... read more
Shaun's back!
