Hey there Leslie family - Rediscovered your blog as part of a clean up effort after a recent hard drive crash... Found myself in a magical moment running in North Hampton a few weeks ago, only to discover Josh, Ez and Suraj a quick drive away - With the help of an appropriately cynical dean (who really couldn’t understand why I was so excited to see your children) managed to pull them out of class into the sunshine for a glorious 45 minutes exchange in which all the boys were appropriately hugged and sent back to their learning… I was again reminded of how much I appreciate they walk this earth and celebrate that I managed to share a small part of the journey with them… Happy Dasain to all.
Hope all is well--
Colleen (and Aaron) Broderick

hey, colleen, and imagine our delight when josh told us this story the other week. we were absolutely thrilled that you found each other in america and that you made the effort to find these three nepali musketeers in the cow pastures of western massachusetts. tks!!

you remain one of their greatest inspirations from lincoln. i don't know if was your understated charm, your insightful intelligence, yr commitment to them as individuals, the profound affection you bring to everything you do or just the stars... but you were a precious teacher for the short time you were among them.

josh was almost laughing on the phone when he described you hiding behind ezi (he's tall enough now for a whole soccer team to be back there...).

given how far they feel away from their beloved k'du, your sudden arrival was a great gift for them. thank-you again for taking the time to slip away from northampton to see them.

i'm there on the 17th of october for parents' weekend. you can imagine how much we miss their presence here in our home. i can't wait to be w/ them there and welcome josh & ez back at new year.

w/ affection, keith (shakun & ms. leah)
