The pukana is a hideous thing that shouldn't be part of the art, especially at an international level.
Eventually, I'm going to visit the US one last time. I abandoned my status, by default, years ago when Larry got too sick for us to fly anywhere. I could contest the abandonment and easily win a case based on his illness and our inability to renew my status and retain my permanent residency, but we fought the Immigration systems of both our countries for 12 years.
Emotionally and mentally, it's easier to abandon it completely than fight it.
PS. Week 9 in Capture real life in 52 weeks was an Acrylic Paint Mini Album challenge, which I will omit simply because it sounds as awesome as crafts night with the Relief Society.
