In 3 weeks I will be on a snowboard trip in Tokyo and in 1/2 months later I have the opportunity to work for the Red Cross in Mongolia for a year. It's a little unnerving thinking about moving to a place landlocked by Russia and China with winter windchill of -55 C.
Today I was volunteering at the library and had the pleasure of meeting a lady who was interesting and a great conversationalist. She was writer working on her first novel and helped me make a decision on moving to Mongolia along with giving me some insights on life and creativity.
I know this will be a challenging experience and I am still trying to process such a big decision. But It is not often that opportunities present themselves to us and I believe that the only thing we should do is take them with an open mind.
The possibility is that I could be housebound by a snowy tundra, batting the 3rd bout of food poisoning, or struggling with an unfamiliar culture. But then again it could be anything, So I think I need to try.
