At approxiamately 7:58pm [Dominican time] I came to the startling conclusion that at this point in my life, the greater majority of things that I love in my life right now are digital, intangible, without matter... one fragment away from being a figment of my imagination.
So my question is, is tangibility a necessity?

I think it goes without saying that the Dominican Republic is a beautiful place. Beautiful people, beautiful weather, etc, etc... However, I find myself wondering why I'm here. I look at all the other people in my program and they've had 4+ yrs of Spanish, or they've travelled to other countries before coming here, and it makes me think... "What the fuck have I been doing with my life?!"
The entire time I've been here I've questioned myself, my motives, my goals, and I'm still without an answer...
The upside to this "U-curve" is that I have less time to focus on the less important things that I would normally be worrying ab in the States...
Ahhhhh well... Guess I'll be on my one man see-saw for the next 4mos...

I don't know where I've been for the past 30+ years... Here I've been thinking that I'm a modern music connoisseur, [by my standards anyway], and I've been TOTALLY sleeping on the Motown era US/UK soul scene! I love samples, but I never took the time to find the original artists. Now I have a hunch, and I'm beginning my hunt for vintage vinyl.
