Hey y'all, I'm fine. I wasn't close to the bomb but I did hear the big boom. I didn't realize what a big deal it was until the news reports trickled in. Please say a little prayer for the lives lost.
I didn't post yesterday because I was out and about, celebrating my baby cousin's b-day and then to a work dinner. I guess that sounds weird with the bomb and all, but I can't spend my life on hold. And before I came, I somewhat made my peace with the situation in Kabul. This is where I want to be.
And don't worry O, I always will miss my family and friends in the U.S. And 7-11 Slurpees. And Waffle-House. And...let me just stop now.
On a different tangent, it's such a lovely season in Kabul. Fall, even with its dust, is beautiful. There is a cool air mixed with the hot sun and it makes me feel that something fresh and new is on its way. The security situation isn't very good now but I'm hopeful that it will get better.
Thanks to everyone for the e-mails and posts.
