The day arrives

Posting may be intermittent over the next couple of weeks.

I’m the only one up in my house at the moment but very soon we’ll all be sharing our last breakfast together for ten days.

I have to be at the airport at around 9:45 to fly out at 10:45. Between now and then I need to put all the clothes my Pauline has so wonderfully prepared for me into my case and then double check that I have everything I need. (I just know I’ll forget something.)

Over the next couple of days I’ll fly from Perth to Sydney then to Los Angeles then Miami and finally on to Haiti. I’ll be in Haiti for around a week before I repeat the entire process in reverse.

I feel totally unprepared but I’m sure that’s what long flights are all about. The flights will give me time to finally stop and soak in the information that I haven’t had time to process so far. I’ll read about Haiti and find out a little bit more of what to expect, I’ll read the instructions to my audio recorder to make sure that I know what I’m doing when I start interviewing people from Compassion and those they serve.

I probably won’t get many opportunities to write much over the coming days but I’m still hopeful that I’ll keep you up to date.

Your comments will be very much appreciated but I may not get to reply to them immediately. If I get internet access I’ll be checking my email so feel free to drop me a line. You’ll find my email address by going to my Contact Page.

Until then, catch you somewhere around the world.
