The Countdown begins

Well, really, the countdown has already begun. We leave Tashkent in less than two months. It's difficult to believe, but we're now looking at what we have around our house, and trying to figure out what we will give away or sell, what we will put into long term storage, what we will need while in the States for three months, and what will ultimately follow us to our next post, which will be Chennai, India. I don't know that I've posted that in the blog, but, yes, we will be in south India from late September, for a similar two year stint.

Definitely Different!

It’s been seven months—seven months—since I last posted a blog entry.

So much has happened in 7 months. 

The biggest being that I lost my younger brother, Stephen, to suicide. Not a day has gone by that this hasn’t affected me. Blogging about life in Uzbekistan pales next to that. It seems so unimportant, really.

But, sola resurgit vita—Latin for “life alone goes on.” This is a line from an obscure Cat Stevens song that has always resonated with me. It seems especially meaningful these days…
