Don't lament the past nor be anxious about the future, simply rejoice in the moments of your life. It takes much courage to see the beauty and joy in the seemingly mundane here and now.

My Lovely Salad
Yet another food blog. I know some of you say that my salad is rabbit food (not "real" food) but try living most of a year without lettuce and cucumbers ... you just might miss them. Well, in the last two weeks Ive been able to get both and added tomatoes, carrots, some olive oil with a bit of sprinkled basil and cashews to make a great meal. Only prob is I have to eat the whole thing because no way to save it. Eating tonight by candlelight and listening to Pavorotti. Life is indeed good at this moment. Moral of story? Enjoy little moments and it adds up to a lifetime of great memories. [Okay, yeah, that was too corny. What do you expect? Im a math teacher, not a poet!] Now if I could get good, fresh strawberries! That's the ticket.
Being who I am, this will of course be a streamlined site mainly to provide updates during my time in Kenya. For those of you who know me that means a minimal "bells & whistles" (no thrills) webpage. However, I hope to provide interesting writings to illustrate in the best way possible my service in the Peace Corps.
