Slowly re-entering the world

I got back last Wednesday, and have been moving at a snail's pace ever since. SO much happened while I was gone - big things like the disaster in Haiti, smaller things like the Conan debacle, and I've been so wiped out it was all I could do to catch up on emails between naps.

I had an amazing time in Senegal, and am slowly creeping back into my "normal" life of applying for jobs, certifying for unemployment benefits, volunteering at various local organizations, and writing for myself and for Gapers Block.

I'm simply amazed at my body's capacity to adapt - for more than two weeks I was in another world, waking up at strange hours, eating different foods, pushing my body to the limit with dance and travel, and not once did I get sick. I think a love letter to my GI system is in order, along with my immune system and my muscles.

I have a lot of catching up to do on this blog, and I'll get there, I promise!
