On My Way to Kibera!

I’m getting excited about my upcoming trip to Kibera, Nairobi, Kenya, leaving September 3, 2014, to continue my work with the Power of Hope Kibera (pohk.org).  Stay tuned for more adventures in hygiene and friendship.

Just to remind myself and everyone else what it’s like there, here’s a GoPro Video I shot last February…

Euphoria at 9,000 feet…

One of my oldest and dearest friends spends her summers at 9 thousand feet, (sort of ) near Guffey, Colorado.  That would be about 2 hours west of Colorado Springs. In one day we had sun, wind, clouds, torrential rain, hail, sleet, snow, cold.

I love this place.  It speaks to me through the clouds, native gramma grasses, the trees that grow so strong at this altitude. In the natural world, the strongest survive here.   Bye for now, friend.
