So i begin

As i return to Uganda, i realize it's important for my emotional well-being and my spiritual growth that i record my thoughts regarding, well, who-knows-what. What i do know is this: that the last year was too hard to ever be repeated again; that i need help to see the tiny treasures of beauty hidden within the entanglements of my day; that too many times i want to remember wisdom or events or lessons for my children when they're older...yet i never write them down. This is a place for me to record the things of yesterday...and today...and tomorrow that can be fertilizer for my growth. And my children's growth. And my grandchildren's growth. The past, no matter how dark and scary, can be a platform for the beginning of great beauty and wonder.
