She describes this as, "A snapshot of my week: 2 plays, 2 concerts => 4 different theaters and a very happy Io "
me: "We are doing well. I love all the light that we have in summer. Here, winters are very dark in the morning and the evening, but in summer, the sun shines from the time I wake up until I go to sleep.X-son: Ok that's cool!! here in Haiti almost everyday they are shooting people we cant anymore the Goverment never say anything to us there is no job no Gas for the Vehicule things are really bad down hereme: That sounds scary and difficult. I'm so sorry. I heard that Covid-19 is bad there, too. Is that right?X-son: Yeah Mom things are going very scary and Covid-29 is really bad there and cant anymore"
And while life is really hard there in Haiti, the sun shines here, especially on my dog. People wander by our home and call in through the front screen door, "Can Prewash come out? " There's a coterie of children who clamber up onto our front porch and fight over who gets to use the dog brush that I keep there, explaining to me in earnest tones which parts of her doggy body she likes to have brushed best. Construction workers take a detour to visit her, remarking to me as her whole torso quivers with the aftershocks of her tail wagging that she must smell their dogs. Neighbors leave dog treats on the porch, so that every morning she runs out on the front porch, sniff-searching like crazy, because every day is a brand new Easter Egg hunt.
And that's the news from our family, which continues to be wealthy in our adventures. May you and yours be similarly prosperous.
