Loaded Silence

Loaded Silence

So, yet again, it’s been a while since I last wrote. This time I know exactly why. I’ve been in some serious denial about what’s coming. I starting writing this blog in my head almost two weeks ago. When it was exactly one month from the big D-day… the departure. That’s when it hit. I’m […]

The Journey or the Destination

The Journey or the Destination

I always say life is about the journey, not the destination, but sometimes the destination is pretty cool. This past weekend consisted of a road trip to Cape Agulhas, the REAL southernmost point on the African continent and where the the Indian and Atlantic Oceans meet. So no insightful thoughts(ha!) week, just some pictures.   […]

Thankful Hearts and Smiles

Thankful Hearts and Smiles

It’s where I have been planning a “fun” activity to work with the substance abuse recovery program. Muizenberg is about a 30 minute commute from the valley where I normally live and work […]

The Cape Town Experience

The Cape Town Experience

Someone told me yesterday that “now you’ve truly experienced Cape Town-baboons and wild fires!” Yes, the saga continues. My first week here I had a baboon in the house and MANY of you like to bring it up each time we communicate. Thank you. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I knew baboons were part of the package when I […]

Photos from Cape Town

As I stated earlier, it was a little awkward taking pics when most of the people we were working with knew I was coming back to work full-time. Special thanks to Michele Stephens and Justin Petrowski for the pics for this blog!! I will post again soon about what I found out this trip. Trying […]
