Sorting and fixing

It is kite season again and the sky above Kabul is filling up with kites. The victims of kite fights, or simply of poorly knotted strings, are already visible on the roof of our guard’s quarters and in the trees around our house. I have to find time to go to a kite shop to collect a few colorful specimens to take home.

Today was another clean up day. I sorted through piles and piles of Axel’s papers and created new piles, one of the language school, one for SOLA and one for the waste basket. In the evening, on Skype, Axel gave is final blessing to the choices I had made for him.

I had lunch with Katie, which has just started to be a nice weekly ritual but she is leaving next week for a break in the US and I will have left before she returns. We may be able to find a nice lunch place in Massachusetts before she heads back to Kabul.

I finished listening to 880 pages, about 40 hours of David Copperfield being read to me by a superb actor who brought a whole array of characters to life with his voice. I have gotten quite fond of all of them and am sorry the book is finished. It has become one of my all time favorite books.

Fazil my jewelry friend came over to take a last order from the Turquoise Mountain craftsmen. I sent him home with two of Sita’s instruments to be fixed for playing – if that is possible. He knows where to take them – if those people cannot do it, they will have to remain decorative instruments.
