Ten years and six months

Ten years ago today?

I was in the Netherlands at work, probably trying to get one last round of journal editing done before I could go home. I remember wondering why the whole editing department was crowded around someone’s computer. I don’t remember many details after that.

Six months ago today?

I was teaching a little girl whose family had recently moved to Japan from Texas. That was her first earthquake ever. Six months later, the English is tumbling out of her mouth again, and I really do need to call her something other than Earthquake Girl.
