"We're fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance."
This Japanese proverb reminds me to not take myself or life too seriously. To take time to move, ruminate and interact with others without too hung up on how I am perceived.
I am a Peace Corps volunteer, serving in Namibia. I'm working with an after-school program teaching OVCs life-skills, psycho-social support and gardening. New skills I've added: sleeping through roosters' crows and carrying water on my head. Every day is full of unexpected turns and I love it. This is my life.
