Mi Hermano Mayor

A brief update:

Sorry I haven’t posted, but I had a family emergency and had to fly to be with my brother in Florida. Already battling cancer, he came down with a few nasty viruses and double pneumonia. He was very very sick and then, true to form, summoned his considerable stamina and recovered. My brother, nephew and I rushed to be by his side only to witness what was nothing less than a remarkable comeback.

Before leaving Costa Rica to see him, I had interviewed for and gotten an opportunity to teach English to adults. I was supposed to start this past Tuesday, but, of course, I couldn’t. The folks at the school were very understanding and said they’d wait for me. It will be fun to do something that I love and that connects me to the community.

Let’s hope it works out. Pura vida, and until next time.
