Words bridge us together.
I lived overseas for nearly a decade. It was not my first time living abroad, but this particular location alarmed family and (some) friends. To them, I moved to an exotic but dangerous place, perpetually under the threat of war and the shadow of religion.
To satisfy everyone's concern and curiosity, I started writing weekly emails. But after the first year, the newness for me faded, and everyday life was just that-- everyday life. To make the writing process more interesting, prose transitioned to poetry.
My weekly emails home have long ended, but my writing continues. These are stories about life... my life, mainly the struggles and frustrations, the pleasures and irrationalities, and the baffling bizarreness of human interactions.
