Philly Staging

We arrived in Philly, to snow and ice everywhere. Took a tour around and saw the famous liberty bell along with Independence Hall and saw a copy of the Constitution there as well. Overall it was a nice and snowy day . . .

And this one I just loved in color:

There Never Was.

“We weep over the might have been, but there is no might have been. There never was.”


Reading Cormac McCarthy’s Border Trilogy I found this quote. While placing it here, independent of its’ paragraph, page, chapter and book changes its’ context, as it stands alone I agree wholeheartedly.

I never quite find the push to do all the things I desire or dream over, but as I prepare to leave the US for Zambia with the Peace Corps much of my decision to go has grown out of this idea. There is no might have been, there never was and so I made the choice to go to a new country and community for the next two years.

I haven’t forgotten about Sudan.  I had a dream about El Obeid and my friends there. I plan to take the rest of my time in the states to post these photos and videos of my time there.
