The First Thing
Go home and celebrate Christmas with my family.
The Second Thing
Move in with my daughter's family, and help them with Jayse, my new grandson, for a couple of months.
The Third Thing
Return to Africa, and travel from its Southern tip to its Northern tip, helping people along the way.
I am on a search for myself, and even though I know that I am right here, I have become very good at hiding from myself -- so good, that I think I will have to trick myself just to find me. I have seen that putting myself into a new culture forces me to learn about myself, and that is in fact, what I will do.
For all intensive purposes, my religion is:
- I must seek to understand myself, so that I can become a mirror for others.
- I will go out into the world and help where help is needed most. I will find those places where there is great suffering an go there, serving others with compassion; removing what suffering I can.
