Day 71-75 – Fleeting Glances

Day 71-75 – Fleeting Glances

Am I here or in Bolivia? Every night I have dreams of leaving, returning, tossing-turning, fleeting moments of lucidity when I ask, in which world am I? I prefer the closeness, simplicity of Bolivia…where conversations are long and personal, work happens when it does, and no one is ever alone.

Hearing the crickets at night through the open window. Thin sheet. Thick humidity. I knew for sure I was in Chapare; the Bolivian rain forest.  But no, I was in the northern forest of Vermont with birch and pine needing to get the kids up early for yet another day of school, the HDCA paper due, syllabi to finish, and Moodle postings to do. Another busy day. Sigh!

Next post will be the initial HDCA paper – I will stop labeling the days since technically that part of the research has ended.  Look for updates on content in this blog too with better links, images, better edited posts, and completed information.
