Delayed Beginnings

March 26, 2012 § 2 Comments

As objectively informational as possible: I came to Taiwan for a girl, a purpose that was slightly more significant to me than post-grad employment teaching English. I am retarded now, in full peanut-butter suspension, because both elude me like a flashlight on the surface of a star-sun.

Now, as I am unable to understand really what has happened/is happening/will happen to me, I can only offer my friends back at home a chronological list of experience words:

excitement, bewilderment, uncertainty, vulnerability, panic, leaking, despair, reload, storm, flicker, death, alone, quiet, rest, struggle, stand, strong, wait…

and that’s where the list ends; so I’ve caught you up. But! I have pictures below of the ocean; this was my first time to re-enter after almost 2 and a half years. I ran so fast I cut the skin between my biggest and second biggest toe. And then there is a picture of me in the shitty hotel that is my home for now.

Soon, I’ll write about what it’s like here. I mean, I really just want to tell stories because there are a lot of them, but I’ll try to get pictures in every post because I have to have something to distinguish between this blog and my general stories blog (which I’ve neglected so hard).

    Awwww, the uncertainty of reality has crashed upon your shore. I’m managing a less threatening and less exotic version here in the bowels of the boring Midwest. Wish I could be there with you to share yours with you. Count on me for anything to ease your burden I can do my friend and my blood.
