Deep Thoughts

The other night I couldn't sleep at all. I woke up around 2am and then didn't fall back asleep until nearly 5am.  I spent the time going through an old email address, back before gmail up until I scored a coveted gmail invite.  So, probably pre-dating 2007.

I had saved a ton of emails that a sent during my time in the Peace Corps, including an especially intense strand between a close friend, who wishes to be called Midnight Pony.

This is Midnight Pony.

I'm thinking about starting a new blog (or at least doing a segment on this one) where I share the overly deep thoughts I had during this time.  It's amazing how "into" your head you can get when you have unlimited time to think and without the mind-numbing distraction of television in English, malls, a car, etc.  It's also amazing how intense and angst-filled your thoughts can be when you're 23 and sure you can save the world.

Me, Circa 2005
What's not amazing is how much fun a pair of old glasses can be when you're marooned in medical TDY.

So what do you all think?  Would you read these? I would obviously change names to protect others and make myself look good :)
