holmes sweet holmes

sucking marrow and seeking more

Things Cairo Gave Me

Life-long friends


An ability to sweat without noticing

Another place in this world to call home

Two of my most challenging years as a teacher

140 kiddos who will forever be my students

A chronic cold

An opportunity to discover the core of myself

Soul sisters

Hand signals, vocabulary, shifting perspectives that mark me “Egyptian” (yanni, at least in heart)

New fashion choices: jeans under dresses, Friday bants, sweaters in 60* weather

An understanding that just because something isn’t done my way, doesn’t mean it’s wrong
