at a loss.

I've been sitting here for about an hour, scrolling through the hundreds of photos I've taken over the past few weeks.  With this fancy new camera and very little time to read a multipage manual and actually figure out how to take good photos, I've just been taking craploads and hoping that some turn out okay.  There was Heritage Day at St. Leo's and St. Theresa's, various community outings (and spider sightings in our house), and the day I brought my camera to school "just in case".  I ended up spending twenty minutes doing a Grade 7 boys' photo shoot, and now, looking through these pictures, I'm meditating on the 23 days I have left here and wondering to myself how I can possibly feel so excited and relieved to have the end in sight... but also, feeling so sad at the prospect of leaving these kids, most of them probably forever.

A selection:

I'm feeling a little short on words tonight.



  1. Photos 2 and 5 are particularly good.

  2. I love these, Shin! So nice to see a bit more of your life there :) Keep it up sister, and we'll see you stateside soon!!! xx

  3. I've looked at this entry so many times. It is so good.

  4. Glorious Shin, just glorious, but I'm not sad you're leaving ;)
