watch this: amadou et mariam
(not that i was here exactly but you get the idea...similarities in sights and sounds)
sometimes i "forget" that i spent 6 months in a place so rich and beautiful. only because it's worlds away from me here. lately i've been thinking about it more...praying that God would so engage my heart with the world again while i remain here for awhile--at least some refreshed passion and vision. we ought never grow dull to the world. and i don't ever want to forget what that experience contributed to who i am becoming.
anyway. enough of the nostalgia, eh? back to the paper-writing!!
