A Big Leap

I have always been one to play it safe. Maybe too safe, I’ve come to realize. After some thrilling smaller ventures away from my familiar life, I’m ready to take a big leap. Follow along on my volunteer journey to India.

Quite a happy Monday March 24, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — Amy @ 9:28 am

This morning I woke up feeling like it was a glorious Saturday morning. I lay in bed smiling, I felt like all was right with the world. The reason? I had a beautifully vivid dream.

In the dream, I was in the car with my mom and she let me out at Whole Foods. I ran inside and purchased all kinds of goodies to get me through the rest of my time here, including Luna bars of all flavors, wasabi pea snack mix, cereal with pretzels(?!) and all other varieties of dry foods. I ran through the store with glee. I was SO excited in my dream that it carried over into my morning, even though I didn’t get to take my loot out into my waking world.

Work today was so lovely as well, you never would have guessed it was a Monday. The kids maybe were still giddy from Holi. They were so sweet, so talkative, so enthused. We couldn’t get them to learn much (although I did get Rahul to tell me the color of the red bowling pin, which was progress), but we danced around, sang “Shake My Sillies Out”, did Ring Around the Rosy, and they colored and put stickers on things. I got a couple of cute pictures of the kids with me (they’re all dressed up because they had medical checks today):



Happy Monday!

    Hi Amy,

    I wrote to you yesterday but I don’tsee it . Did you get it?

    How are you? Feeling better I hope. I so enjoy reading what you are doing. The children are so beautiful. They must relish the attention.

    So what have you been up to? Are you planning on traveling before you leave?
