It was the best of times, it was the worst of times

Oct 1, 2009

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times; it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness; it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity; it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness; it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair; we had everything before us, we had nothing before us; we were all going directly to Heaven, we were all going the other way."

- Charles Dickens

Mr Dickens so eloquently sums up how I have been feeling over the past few months. I reached the highest highs of travel, fun and frivolity over summer vacation and then the lowest lows of being ill in a foreign country, with a foreign illness. I am feeling more evenly tempered these days, ready to share it all, the best of times and the worst of times.
