I learned the word 'ephemeral' today.

I miss my International Relations Theory teacher. She was one of the most astute yet jubilant people I've ever met. Usually scholars hide behind their intelligence. She didn't and learned more by doing so. She was one of those people who stands on the brink of a glacier and dives into an even more vast and complex field of knowledge, looks back and rethinks the world. She would never get bumper stickers because of it.

So here's to ambiguity! No bumper stickers and public announcements for me. I'll leave you with mehndi a beautiful ephemeral body art until I have my chess pieces in order. It might be awhile.
