To imaginary friends

Bullet list update, for possible amplification later (some names fictitious):

* English corner at the library
- Chapter 1 of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, with little Dorothy.
- Gave Dorothy's mother children's stories to look at, from the life of Abdu'l-Baha, to see if she approves of me reading them to Dorothy.
- Invited to speak at the next English corner.

* Friendships
- Invited to birthday party for Lin's child.
- Invited to dinner with Min and friends.
- Visited by Jin and Yin, made tea, fascinated by Baha'i books, walked by the lake, felt like old friends.

* Web
- Discovered Susan Gammage's teleconferencing study circles initiative.
- Came out on facebook with my "anti-semitic" and "homophobic" views.
- Resisted temptation to get drawn deeper and deeper into Internet discussions.
- Responses to Emily's blog

* Daily living
- More OCR: announcements, community center displays, learning to use photo editing functions.
