Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
Studied studiously, seriously for an MA in English at the U of Oregon. Finished faintly, with a little help from my friends and now teach the same English to 7th grade and community college students in the San Fernando Valley of California. It's great, especially in July and August.
Got married to my best friend and have bored her silly with "When I was in Nepal . . . " Actually, she loves the stories and is learning Nepali! We're planning a trip back to Nepal sometime.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
I think about my time in Nepal always. It lives in my bones. Nepal was a revalation to me in every way. Still is. My life is beautiful today because of what I learned there, because of who I became there. Even if I'm ever only a simple school teacher, I will live in the greatest goodness of life thanks to what Nepal and the Peace Corps, I suppose, gave to me.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Anybody who remembers this silly dope and wants to say hello, I'd love to hear from you. ;)
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Cana canu bhyo? Namaste sathi haru! Ramro sunga janus!
