Africa bound....

I am going to take the next two weeks off from phones, from computers, from radios, televisions and the snews, let someone else do the driving and just let Kenya soak in. So be well all and peace to you and yours.....even Dina is going to DogMed for a break from me....;^)

Generous Adventures......

As I have mentioned, Kit and I, with our friends Jim and Karen C., are traveling to Kenya and Tanzania next month and we are going with Sally Oberstein, owner of the company "Generous Adventures"....Travel Auctions for a Better World....

I would like to make a plug for her company which is a non-profit organization contributing money to many various good works around the world.

I am not able to put a link on here so just Google 'Generous Adventures Travel Auctions' and it will come right up.

Kit and I are not "tour" type travelers. However this will be the second trip we have made with Sally and her people....the first was a great two week boat trip on the Amazon River in Peru. We had such a good time and it was so well run and kicked back and the people were so enjoyable that we are excited to see Kenya and Tanzania with her.

More to be told later ....but give her website a peek and see what you think..

Oh, New Mexico, how I love you.....

So I made it safely home to good ol' Truth or Consequences....."We're all here because we aren't all there".....what a crazy little place...but so serene and healing.

I got home to waist high weeds in much of the yard and have gotten them pretty well knocked down now and Dina is getting some great exercise on her old haunts.

I think the main thing I am happy about is having a family of friends here that are so welcoming...well, that and the food....;^)

I recently got a email and a call from some very dear old friends from a distant past and I am very happy about that and hopefully Gary, a Navy messmate when we were both stationed at Whidbey NAS in 1963 and a longtime friend, will be meeting me in his van somewhere down here in the southwestern wilds for some good adventures this winter.....maybe he will be interested in making the RubberTramp Rendezvous in Quartzite late January with my vandweller buddies.

Anyway, I am back with my men's meditation group and that will be really helpful to of our guys is going up to Window Rock to live in a hogan for the winter and I would like a chance to go visit him. He is the native brother that put together a sweat ceremony in Window Rock for our meditation group.

Life is good in this moment and I wish you all a great moment as well...
