leavin' on a jet plane...

It's been a long wait, but I am finally going to get back to Haiti! It will only be for a couple of weeks, but I'll take it.

A few of you may remember that I left abruptly in 2013 - having received word that my mother had been in what ought to have been a fatal car accident, I was out the door in less than 24 hours. I am happy to report that my mother is still with us, which, in the words of more than one trauma doc, is miraculous. But that's another story. (Feel free to pray for my parents' health, however.)

Anyway, I am preparing to travel and beginning to think of the things I am looking forward to. Thanks to my phone, I have nifty little emojis for some of them. I was disappointed not to see a mango emoji, but then I realized they're not in season anyway, so I had better stop pining for a mangue francique.



Finally finishing my post... on the plane waiting for boarding to finish! Pleased to report that I understand all the announcements in Kreyol. That is encouraging. 

I hope to post a bit while there, but it remains to be seen how much internet access I will have. 

Time to go!
