    Blogging! What a great way to see photos and catch a glimmer of your time in Liberia. See you soon.

    Wow! I have tears in my eyes looking at those pictures. At first, my favourite picture was that delicious-looking table of brand new books being sent to the schools, until I saw the children – those beautiful children, with their gorgeous faces so eager to learn. Thanks for sharing.

    I'd love to show you more, Nan. Let's get together soon.

    ….well I just knew that once you had touched down on that African soil….and been part of the tumble of an enthusiastic African conversation in english with a beat….you would never be the same. I suspect you will never again be "back into your Canadian life"….those Morovian writers know a source of ongoing help when they see it!

    Hardy-har, Pat. Much as an ongoing relationship would be very satisfying in many ways, I do have to earn a living! AND "a source of ongoing help" is hardly the point of the program! (As you well know.) Thanks for your interest, and it was fun to get your quite accurate reading of where my heart's sitting right about now. 🙂
