I had left home before, like an eight-year old with my belongings wrapped in a kerchief on a stick, only to return for dinner, or rather within a year. But I know that this time, I have succeeded. I have made a life for myself here. I still hold a side bet with a good international medical policy, a sister in whose house I can seek shelter, and enough reserve for a comfortable retirement home in the twilight years. But until then, I have a life of feeling needed, contributing, encountering, learning. ....


Dem Blöden fährt bei jedem sinnvollen Wort der Schrecken in die Glieder. (Heraklit von Ephesos)
