Une pensée en passant • A thought for today #19

Global T was kind enough to Like the post “Growing a Baby’s Future in Sierra Leone.” So I went to visit their blog, The Traveling Winter Hat, and found it delightful. Too clever to try to describe here; visit it yourself.
Thought I’d re blog their Thought for the Day. Sherbro Foundation came about in part because I didn’t want to only read a page of the world’s book at this point in my life. I needed to get back to my Peace Corps past when first coming to Sierra Leone so long ago and life truly was an adventure.
Well, it still is.
Makes me also think of a recent Peace Corps recruiting ad: “Life is calling. How far will you go.” You don’t have to go as far as Sierra Leone. Just go, whether by foot or in your mind.
So Global T, I don’t see Sierra Leone on your Traveling Winter Hat map yet. You’re missing a lot.

Globe-T.
