Welcome home, Hugo. We missed you.


Welcome back.

Nice thoughts on community and its consequences, Hugo. Welcome back.

"Most of them will live their lives surrounded by kin, rarely (unless they choose to move to Bogota to make money) traveling more than two dozen miles away from the land on which they were born. How can those of us who live wealthy and peripatetic lives in America and Europe not envy that?"

Maybe it's pointless for me to keep up with this theme, but I don't envy them. My friends are a community of choice, family is a community of fate. In my experience, the former is more reliable, at least given the life I've lead.
