I'm traveling and studying in Central and South America during Fall 2006. I'll be recording my reflections here--the reflections of someone who has always thought outloud, who always thought best by talking and listening to others, by writing and responding to writing. I'll soon find myself in a place where I don't know the language. How will I live, if I can't do what I do, to live? What will feed me? How will I drink? How will I find my way to grokking?
