Lately things have been pretty inactive here at dlittlegarden. Sorry, folks. I owe a few people email responses, and definitely need to update the blog with pictures of the new apartment, plans for decorating, etc., but for today I'm just checking in to let you know I'm still alive. We should be getting internet access at the new place within the week, and then I promise to start posting with greater frequency.
One other thing I'd like to share: I had the privilege to go to Ishmael Beah's reading at UNICEF house last night, the eve of his book release. Ishmael is so inspiring! Even with all the hell he went through, experiencing armed conflict first-hand in Sierra-Leone, he encouraged all of us in attendance to remember that whatever loss of humanity we may experience in our own lives, it can always be regained. I look forward to reading the rest of his book this weekend.
