When I was in High School, I met one of my soul mates, A Finnish Foreign Exchange Student who lived in a house down the street my senior year. We immediately hit it off and she started calling me "Her American Sister" A name, I treasure to this day. She visited a few years ago and it was like the time in between was just a moment.
She has a blog-Visit her. She's funny. She's deep (much deeper than what you find on this blog!) and she's writing in English, her second (or 3rd or 4th) language. Amazing because she is so darn articulate. She's doing wonderful things with her life. As soon as I get the blog list up and running she'll be on it. In the mean time, Take a visit!
Don't miss her post, I Want To Be As Good As The Monk Standing Next to me. She has such a way of looking inward that is funny and honest and insightful. (And she's always insightful!). Oh and take a look at the lovely side bar on her home page!!!
