After receiving news that I had received a Fulbright grant, I experienced and received such profound support, love, and good wishes from friends and family. I felt such joy mixed with a sense of relief (waiting for news about a grant often has moments that mimic waiting for water to boil) and an intense reckoning with reality.....wow! I can't believe this really is happening? Whoa, now I have to actually go through with my project. Parka. I'm going to need a parka. Finland! I'm going to Finland! Who's going to teach my classes while I'm gone? I'm going to miss Brian like crazy. Is Sarah's new school going to let her take four months out of her 6th grade year and allow us to retain her enrollment? Wow - we're going to Finland!
