The other week I made a list of places I would like to see. Very short, not nearly covering a tenth of my curiosities. The top of that list was Nepal.

The top of that list has been Nepal for a few years now.

Yesterday a friend planted a seed in my head about disappearing into the mountains of Kalimpong, on the Indo-Chinese border, and doing some grant-writing. Along with some writing-writing.

Luring me with the prospect of productivity in the Himalayas. Tucked away from the chaos of Brooklyn. A quieter, more thoughtful existence. Even if it is temporary. 

A few steps closer to Kathmandu. 

Now to find some funding. For myself, and for the foundation. 

If I write it here, maybe it will happen faster.
