We are always in the process of reinventing ourselves. Everyday serves as an opportunity to create the person you want to be. Like the old adage goes, today is the first day of the rest of your life. The thing is that I don’t actually know who I want to be. I want to be a writer but what that really means is I want to write.

This post is not for me. This one is for Central.

You, the ascetic, went all that way for a change of scene, perhaps to the desert, perhaps to the hinterlands covered in snow, perhaps amidst a people whose language seemed obscure, strange, but alluring. Enchanté? Oui.

Sorry for the one-day delay with this post, as I did end up "too busy" yesterday.

I got married in the summer of 2009, and less than a year later I moved to South Korea to teach English the following spring of 2010, leaving my husband, step-son, family and friends behind.
