Oh, Life...

I was excited to come here and un-complicate my life.  That’s all good in theory, until realizing that it’s not about location or escaping at all.  It’s about you.  Well…me, that is.  The longer your life, the more ties, relationships, events, and essentially, complications there will be.  Its’ not something to get away from.  It’s all a part of this huge process that molds and shapes us.  Some things never change, and some things never stay the same.  It’s such a beautiful mess that is so hard to grasp even the closest edges that I don’t often think about it.  But when I do, it hits like a bowling ball to the shin.  Forever can be so many things.  It’s always changing.  (for Jers and Roz, “Embrace it!”)

Fun fact about Ghana:
People don’t appreciate pets here.  They might have them, but they don’t really have them for enjoyment like we do in the states.  They don’t feed them ‘dog food’.  They just get leftover table scraps.  They more or less would have a dog or something to protect the house.
