Someone asked me what exactly I will be doing on this trip. We are going as Tourists, but with a specific purpose to discover our ancestors history and legacy. So essentially the general answer is seeing sights (that may be off the beaten tourist track) and research. Exactly how the research will happen is not so marked out. As has been true in my professional life, I am the accidental researcher. Wandering about accidentally hitting upon a sweet spot, a gold mine.
Not that I believe it is any accident. It is a calling -- destiny. The same Spirit that lead me into this project will carry me through. My prayer is to be open and listening. I often worry about being a vessel too humble and weak to carry the abundance that comes my way. But that is one good reason to share my thoughts in writing and photos. Sharing delectable morsels that will hopefully refresh your soul.
May you also be able to afford to be generous, as people have been with me. As you follow along on this journey may you also witness the generosity of adventure. I have longed for but never realized, till recently, how this all could be afforded.
