I have to step away from Burma for a moment to make a selfish post. The reason my blogging about the Burmese monks and the junta’s crackdown has dwindled over the past couple of days is that I am once again suffering a relapse into illness. This time a very serious one–the most serious yet. I have been having seizures since Thursday night. The ones over the past couple of days have been mild, but nevertheless disturbing. I am scheduled for an MRI and EKG. I am exhausted and very ‘out of it’. Which is why these posts have been fewer than I would like.

I want to be a voice for people who have no voice–but I can barely speak for myself at the moment.
