Well thank you very much WordPress for stealing my intro. But the automated “Hello World” title is really quite apt for me at the moment anyway. And I´m not talking about my most recent attempt at posting a blog here, no.
Right now I´m in Madrid but tomorrow I´m flying half way round the world to Lima, Peru to begin working with Canadian NGO Operation Groundswell http://operationgroundswell.com/ . . . and it still hasn´t hit me.
The last few months have been a bit of a whirlwind getting my feet off the ground but I´ve learnt a lot. More about myself than I realised I had to but we´re not all as clever as we think we are unfortunately. Last night on a pub crawl in Madrid I had a schooling but I don´t think the lesson is over. I´ve got a huge adventure ahead of me, filled with responsibility, opportunity to help, and life lessons.
A couple of people have said to me so far that I won´t come back the same and I can already feel myself changing. Predictions and omens can come true depending on the atmosphere. Have you ever had a pathetic fallacy rain all over yuor head for example?
I have no idea what to hope and what to hold for this blog but let it be what it is: a way for the people I love to hear my voice from halfway round the world.
