Another year removed from America leaves me with a critical eye on how I experience Christmas. This week I share a look into our volunteer life in Thailand during this holiday season, and a touch of the complexity surrounding those seemingly innocuous conversations.
This week we get back to normal John kind of stuff: simplicity, running, emergency rooms (sorry mom), and trying to make sense of it all!
Reminiscing a little bit about the past, trying to continue to learn from the wisdom of my elders, and weaving this together to create a picture of my possible future.
Well, we had an exciting and full Easter weekend and I have a few thoughts on luxury. Stop in to see how everything is going!
Just a day after his post discussing Simplicity, John has an ironic crisis when his iPhone suddenly (and it seems permanently) stops connecting to the internet. To John's bemusement, Susan gives this post 2 thumbs up with several loud cackles! John does find time to give a little thanks as well.
On Tuesday of this week, I had the opportunity go on Outreach to visit patients and deliver food. Today, I will be sharing about my experience with the 3 patients we visited, and some reflections on simplicity. Happy Thanksgiving week, I will have more to share very soon!
Now that I'm 7 weeks in, I certainly feel settled and I am told winter is quickly approaching. Today I will revisit the tenant of Simplicity and what that looks like for me right now.
As our departure date looms ever closer, a brief look at some ideas and concerns related to simplicity, solidarity, and technology.
