The recent entry “On Love and Loneliness” quotes a conversation between three d i f f e r e n t people. Holly and Brad’s thoughts are not mine. Mine are actually quite opposite of theirs.
To paraphrase, I believe that, while some relationships are finite, many are not. And although I sympathized with Brad and Holly who felt like they were “losing” relationships back in the States— their experience also helped me see and understand how fortunate I am to have such an enormous network of supportive and reliable friends.
My experience in Peace Corps has done nothing but magnify the strength and consistency of my relationships at home.
I am so sorry if any of you misread this entry. It was meant to express gratitude, not fatalism.
