Where I am giddy with fast wifi and espresso.
I just wanted to say how much I have appreciated everyone who's commented on this blo -- either in the comments here, email, on my online community and everywhere else. This my experience, but I can only make sense of it in conversation with all of the people of my world. I was grateful for the touchline while I was in Uganda, and particularly grateful for the questions and comments that you all raised. It's been so good having people make meaning of it along with me.
I'll keep blogging about this project, I think, and will post some more reflections and pics over the next few days. And for all of you who posted about the desire to help -- well, obviously, we certainly need that. And I'm so grateful for all of that.
We will be on a fundraising push for the holidays, and I'll post details here of how you can contribute. I need to confirm that the online contribution mechanism at our Canadian partner is working. I'll also post some real-time costs so you have a sense of what can be bought with what kind of money. (E.g., school fees for a year for one primary kid are $120 CDN).
Thanks again, to all of you. I have been really touched by everyone's ripening connection to this project as I've had my own experience.
