I’m home from Brazil, and I’m as sick as can be. It’s been many a year since I’ve felt so rotten; I was coming down with something even before I flew down, and it got worse while I was in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. I made it through my two lectures, and was moved by the warmth and openness of the students of the Kabbalah Centre in those two great cities. I’m afraid that other than a brief trip up to the top of Corcovado, I didn’t have much energy for sightseeing, and spent far more time than I would have liked flat on my back in hotel rooms. (That meant watching hours and hours of CNN International’s coverage of Egypt, which was indeed gripping.)
I’m so happy to be home to Eira and Heloise. I just wish I weren’t dreadfully under the weather.
My weekly Tuesday column is up today at Good Men Project: Why Don’t Men Settle Down? It’s a familiar theme to long-time readers of this blog. And it’s nice to have a word limit and an editor with a sharp eye.
