Friends

07/14/08

The author, Virginia Wolfe, defines a friend as someone who will listen to you talk about yourself. The next closest to that description of being my friend is reading this blog. Ergo, you are my friend.

It is not my intention to collect friends, ala Facebook or My Space, but I am flattered you take some time from your busy life or boring job to click on this site. I probably don’t know who you are, but I hope you get some insight about my struggles and me. Some have suggested I write a book about my Peace Corps experiences. If I do, it will be fiction. No one would ever believe the truth.

I don't know, I have been reading your blog all along, and I would believe any book you wrote...and with 40 years of Peace Corp volunteers past and present that have been in Western Samoa, there would be plenty of folks to corroborate your story!

Anna asks if you would spend your retirement years there. I bet Mary would have something to say about that!!
