From a work colleague upon learning that I was taking a personal “leave of absence.” Basically becoming voluntarily unemployed for the next six months:
Best of luck in your big adventure! You are an inspiration. I really enjoyed the film about your Guatemala trip when you showed it in Sacramento, and I especially enjoyed talking with you afterwards about focusing on the important things in life. I think of that conversation often when I am considering – should I really plan that trip?? Because the answer is – yes! Now is the time. Thanks so much for encouraging that spark.
Just a couple of weeks ago I went on my first little river kayaking adventure with some friends on the South Fork American. It was wonderful, and I see why you love it. It may not take long for me to get addicted as well…
I’m looking forward to checking in on your blogs. Safe travels! Thank you again!
