Once I Saw a Cloud

Once I saw a cloud;
Cliffs around the edges,
With water coming down.
Only an angel could go there
Without being forced to drown.
It gave me a surprising feeling -
Was it an angels house?
And though it seemed big to me,
Was it only the size of a mouse?

Staring

Why do people stare?
Is it because they’re nosy,
Or is it because they’re not anywhere?
Are they really staring,
Or is something wrong with their eyes?
Maybe they’re just staring
Because they’re in surprise.
Do they know it’s rude to stare?
Do they think they saw a bear?
Or do they see a tiger or a lion?
I’m looking for the answer,
and I keep on tryin’.

I published my Mongol Journal!

Okay ... I think I finally did it। I published my Mongol Journal (you can see it
here ). The book is made from the journal and letters I wrote when I was traveling alone through Mongolia by horse (and hitchhiking) when I was 18. That was 1993! Long time ago.

I have been editting and uneditting and re-editting this book for ages - actually it was written more than a decade ago ... people who were born that year are out of Junior High by now, that's how long it has taken me to finally get around to publishing this book.

So if you still find a typo after all that, all I can say is ... "sorry I'll fix it."

I really hope that somebody will take an interest in this book. It is just everyday Mongolian life through the eyes of an American teenager, but my mother loves it. :)

If you do read it, please feel free to leave feedback. Thanks everybody!
