I thought it’d be great to learn how to speak Haitian Creole, and it would be very handy to be — if you’re a doctor in the United States on the Eastern seaboard — to get to know Spanish, to get to know Haitian.  It wasn’t my intention to spend a quarter of a century there. I’m headed back there from here, so it’s gonna be more than a quarter of a century.  I think it was the right thing not to have a set plan, and I say this to students all the time.  Why should you know what you’re gonna do when you’re 22 or 23 years old?  You’ve gotta allow yourself to be open to new experiences and to keep on learning all the way.
