Couldn't agree w/you more K, and thanks for the list of sources. I too have begun ignoring the whole "simultaneous" thing-it's unrealistic esp if you live overseas. But I'm heartened to see that you keep on submitting amid all your other activities. I think I'm going to go do the same right now!

I just realized my comments aren't always getting posted. I replied to this yesterday but forgot the final final step. Bummer.

Well, I don't remember what I said, but I'm sure it was brilliant!

I live in Shanghai, China, with my Irish
husband and Vietnamese daughter.
Throughout the past four years, I've
crisscrossed the globe more times than
I can count, and while doing so, have
discovered what a kooky, miraculous,
and lovely place our world is. My experiences
enlighten me, inspire me, and crack me up.
