|Mahalo (Thank you) nui loa (very much), Connie and Stormy... I am often surprised and impressed, myself, at having done so much. Somehow it all just happened while I was not planning my life...
I really feel that life can't be planned...we make choices. I wonder what would have happened if I had NOT taken the job offer in Mexico City (which I did, met husband #1, had son etc. etc.)...but had taken up the offer to go to Afghanistan as a representative of the King to work with the nomadic tribes who traveled between Uzbec/Afghanistan to teach about sanitation and first aid. Ummm, I would probably be either dead (in Palace Coup everyone shot) or travelling back and forth with the tribes and a gazillion children drinking yak milk. YUCK! I had just read Mitchner's book and was intrigued.
Leap. The net will appear.
