In December of 2008 Brian Hartenstein and family left America for an adventurous life overseas to live and work throughout Asia, raising three daughters with a sense of wonder and awe at the possibility of the world. It is now 2016 and the adventure continues back home in Oregon. This blog remains as a time capsule to that period. Thank you so much to all our friends around the world. Please stay in touch. We miss you all!

Language of the Beating Heart
Pretty sweet morning in the little mountain classroom. Introduced Midsummer Night's Dream and how to read my old friend William's verse through another madman lover's eyes.
Told them Iambic Pentameter was the language of the beating heart... told them it swung like perfect mathematical tides and spoke to the water inside our bodies. Once again, they bought it.
