I'm off to the Boundary Waters for 21 days. I will be joined by seven youth. There is a potential these youth will all be young women. There is potential I will have a female co-instructor. There is potential for high winds, long rains, and clouds of blood-sucking bugs. There is potential for breath-taking sunsets, best cups of coffee, and tear-filled belly laughter. There is potential for strong emotion and discontent. There is potential for hurt feelings and sorrow. There is also potential for rebirth, enlightning discussion, and moments of inspiration. This is my job. This is my passion. This is how I say, better, not more. Closer not more distant. Love and forgiveness not distrust and dispair.
Could the entire world be watching me I would not falter. It is my mission to make this world better.
