Was awoken in the middle of the night by this hooting owl. He wanted to talk with me…

Well-written piece about the crisis in West Africa. I am blessed to have been born in the USA.
“How does one face their family — because that is what my community has become — and tell them that I must leave while they must stay? It is another example of the astounding privilege I have as an American, and perhaps the heaviest blow of them all. I am not any better than these people; I have simply been more blessed in the game of chance we call life. I get to leave while they must stay. My country has decided the risk is worth removing me — but who will be their hero? Who will help Guinea? Sierra Leone? Liberia?”
Originally posted on Sara in Peace Corps Guinea:
Today volunteers in Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia received the information that we will be sent home for an undetermined amount of time as a cautionary move against the rising risk of Ebola.
Friends and family back home are overjoyed at the news, but volunteers in-country are stumbling around in a state of shock. Projects that have taken months of sweet-talking the authorities, grueling grant applications, planning every step of the way have to be left now – postponed indefinitely. Bags must be packed. Close of Service dates for volunteers preparing to leave will be moved up. Pre-service training has been stopped dead in its tracks for the recently arrived group of volunteers. Somehow, we must all find the words to explain to our friends and host-families the harsh truth that we are leaving and don’t know when we will be back.

I have tons of snips of music, and occasionally I go digging thru my library to find pieces that might fit together. That happened with “I Just Want to Fade Away” and “Deep Blue,” which just happened to both be in D keys (D Mixolydian and D Dorian, to be precise), very similar tempos (69 and 67 bpm), and in theme (both watery). I’m pretty happy with the result.
