I am from DC, New Hampshire, New Jersey, and California. I drive like a New Yorker, I say “water” like Ms. New Jersey, and I ache for the the Santa Anna winds and miss Napa wines.
The past ten years, I’ve dreamed of travelling the world. Now I am. I live in Hawalli, Kuwait, I taught first and now teach sixth graders.
At the risk of sounding hopelessly maudlin, this is the story of how my dream is working out.
