Whether the Winter...

Nine Weeks until Spring!

As I was driving in Ohio a few days ago, I saw a sign that said "Nine Weeks until Spring." (I wish I had photographed it but I didn't). In this subzero weather, I found it very, very comforting.

Two years ago I travelled to Ghana in late January. I have never been hotter. Thought I would share a few impressions...
It is amazing what you can learn from a few words on a blackboard in a rural school in Ghana. The words: hungry,roasting yam, burning him, watching, ashamed....make you wonder about the lives of these children.
