Things I Learned Yesterday

International travel is gradually becoming normal

Airport flight schedule
A few minutes ago….top line.

 

Bogota, Columbia sits at 7,500’.

Makes Denver’s mile-high status (5,280′) not so impressive.

The Mile High City likely got its nickname from some clever marketing person.

In America, it works.

Yet there are many global cities that a mile up is not noteworthy.

Sitting in the Bogota airport writing this post and reflecting on the past three day’s experience.

This Is Just For Me

No video here but two are coming to you today

Avianca Orlando to South America
First time flying Avianca.

 

No video here but two are coming to you today.

Meanwhile, made the first trip to Columbia yesterday.

First trip to South America was a few weeks ago to Chile.

Firsts are good, sometimes bumpy, and always a stretch of the person you were before it happened.

Joy In Your Spirit

Parents, Grandparents, Relatives

Part of life is the daily challenge of wanting to not miss a thing, but the reality is, we miss a lot. Today, I’ll be returning from a California trip and will be home well past our son’s International Day Parade. Cheryl will capture the singing and dancing on video. Meanwhile, imagine the vision – elementary school children, led by wonderfully smart, nurturing and creative teachers, singing and dancing to their featured dance, Shakia’s Waka Waka, from the 2010 FIFA World Cup in Africa (217mil views can’t be wrong). Click here instead of below if your smart phone won’t accept You Tube:

As parents, grandparents, and relatives of children passing through milestone stages, we hate to miss these exciting events. And then, all we need to do is remember our troops and others who sacrifice, for months, and sometimes years at a time, missing way more than we could ever bare.

An Old Ironic Habit

“It is an old ironic habit of human beings to run faster when we have lost our way”.Rollo May

I’m tempted to question myself. Why? Because many I talk with, think I’m crazy to believe that people will want to change if the right recipe comes along.

There is a secret recipe. Everyone knows it. But because we ignore it, it remains a secret.

The secret is, “work hard and find your purpose”.

Most people don’t want to do either. I certainly didn’t. Most of my life was, “Work hard, play hard”. That’s a catch phrase for, “Hurry up, we’re lost”.

Then I regained consciousness and started looking around.  There’s much work to be done.  The harvest is great, the workers are few.
