This weekend I’m at the Conference of the Association of Friends of Persian Culture, which has mostly entailed spending time with friends and talking so much that I’m losing my voice. I’ve attended a couple of sessions that are in English, but I do not have the attention span to sit in long sessions in another language. Mostly it is an opportunity to be overwhelmed with thousands of Persians in a convention center.
So I’m trying to get through this weekend, survive long enough so I can get into September and leave the chaos behind a little. I’m looking forward to the beginning of autumn, the start of things, the end of summer (as sad as that makes me). This time of year has always held important changes for me, throughout my life.
Everything is good.
