Today I have an opportunity to welcome the new crop of international students who will attend the local college this year – or longer. I love this – my world expands again, and I’m always up for that. My mission? To introduce as many of these students to as many members of the community as I can – matching students with community mentors who can help them negotiate the nuances of life in America in off campus settings. It is one of the best things I do ever – an chance to help real people and to meet some incredibly motivated and talented folks. So I’m going to guess it is wild international undercurrents that inspired this morning’s guitar – especially in view that I can’t lay any other excuse on it…cheese from Norway, almonds from Spain and crackers from England – this morning’s breakfast of champions. I’m ready.
