If you are on this site then you know why I’m going to Africa and you know what I’ll be doing there, but you still don’t know who I am. I’ll try to sum up “me” in a few sentences. :)
I like to be outside, I like to build things and I like to make people smile. I am very extroverted and willing to talk to almost anyone I see. It seems that everyone has something to share and something to teach and this is one of the main reasons why most folks seem so very interesting to me. A favored, and comforting, concept to me is the butterfly effect. A single action will propagate through space and time in ways we can never predict. This is why kindness on a continuous basis is so very, very important. The story of how the Makindu Children’s Program got started is a beautiful example of this concept. A homeless man living in a tree begged for money so he could buy food for the orphans. Without this action, none of us would likely be going on a proper walk in Africa in 2020.
I could tell you about what I do for a living or where I went to school or how much I’ve failed in life (and sometimes succeeded!) or maybe what type of chickens I have in my chicken coop, but I think it’s more important for you to know what all that stuff has taught me. Experience has taught me not to try harder to be a more discerning judge but, instead, to simply accept the world and all that live in it as they are. I care about what happens to our world and I want to impact it positively before I leave it. Even if I can make it just a little, tiny bit better, then MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
Peace to you.
