After nine years of traveling and blogging on Travelpod, I have switched to blogging on WordPress. As usual, I will focus on sharing pictures and stories coming from the perspective of a guy born and raised on the prairie of Southeastern Colorado and living nearly 30 years in Texas. Please be patient as I learn how to use the widgets and gadgets on this site. The photo gallery on the right represents a few photos from the past nine years. I look forward to whatever the future brings and sharing my perspectives of it with you.
I recently returned home after spending six months in east Africa…what a unique experience. In many ways, it reminded me of the year and a half Ronda and I spent in Panama back in the 70s. There were clearly no similarities in the terrain, east Africa has minimal water and as a result, minimal vegetation while Panama was exactly the opposite – a rain forest. What made these two areas similar was the struggle…the human struggle. Living in different regions of the world, I have witnessed the power and resilience of the human spirit under dire conditions that challenge even the lowest stage of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs…food, water, clothing, shelter. I’m hoping as I begin this new blog format, to focus less on my wants (things I often thought were needs), and focus more on personal responsibilities.
My next entry should be from Germany. Talk to you soon.

Brother Jeffery, glad you’re able to go home and be with family for awhile.
