Why the Rain?
The Blog: Getting ready to take off on my first assignment in the Foreign Service, I came to the realization that my old tactic of writing mass “updates” emails to friends and family would only become more burdensome with this new career and the number of (hopefully interesting) updates I would be writing. With this in mind, a blog seemed like the best way to go – I can keep up with family and friends without clogging inboxes, and maybe I can even make some new friends along the way. I cannot promise brilliant writing all the time, but I hope I’ll at least provide something interesting or amusing on occasion.
The Rain: Friends and family know me as one who truly enjoys, relishes, loves the rain. Dancing in the rain, walking the dog in the rain, sitting with a good book and listening to the rain hitting the roof and the windows…. Maybe it’s all just part of being from a family that’s been in Seattle for generations, maybe not.
