to meet or not to meet

Most of the time people assume that I miss Argentina. And they usually look dissapointed when I tell them "I don't". It's not that I deny my roots, on the contrary, I always tell people that I am from Argentina and get to talk about it any opportunity I can. But it's just that "to miss" seems to strong of a feeling for me. I am pretty good at making a good life wherever I am. Also, now I call Minneapolis my home. That's what I feel.
Ok, but if you really, really want me to say that I miss something I would say that I miss meeting people. Not for business or a particular occassion (birthday, x-mass, etc.), just meeting. Meeting just because. Getting together with friends and talk and relax and philosophize and talk some more. It takes a lot of energy just to meet (fully) someone. I think that in Argentina (at least while I lived there) people meet more. In my opinion that type of meeting, that human interaction is essential for quality of life. Since I came to USA I have had glimpses of that type of meeting. I am also happy to say that (at least to me) it's becoming more frequent.
Today I met a new friend (or a new friend to be) and we just met. That simple. And talked and shared and philosophized and talked some more. And all of a sudden it made me realize how much I like meeting people. I miss meeting my old friends from Argentina, but I am happy and I appreciate I am able to meet some new ones here.

ah! very busy! (but happy)

Geez! I can't tell you how hard it is to auto-produce a one-man-show.
But "The Adventures of Don Quixote" is going well. Here are some comments from people:

Great! I read Don Quixote in High School and forgot what a wonderful story it is! Thanks you so much for bringing the advnture back to life! (Brenda F.)

"Very creative and funny one act show. I really enjoyed seeing you do all of the different characters. It was nice to have a bilingual show" (Angela P.)

"Great show! Good for both adults and children. Makes me want to read more" (Kathy M.)

"The show was very imaginative + fun + fun to participate in the story + also good to learn words in a different language" (Josette A.)
