    I am trying to think of a new way to tell you how much I enjoy reading your posts! Today I did turn a bit green at your opportunity to attend this conference! I am going to send out a PMSALL to gather amounts and names of people who wish to give towards your needed supplies.

    Oh, Tim! You continue to amaze me! What an wonderful opportunity in Portland as well as your stay at the refugee camp……We are so very proud of you and can’t wait for you to come home and educate us all!

      Cannot believe how much I’m learning this year.

    In regards to you “not being desperate to get how”, remember what Matthew Arnold’s poem? The Scholar Gypsy?
    One stanza reads:
    Come, let me read the oft-read tale again!
    The story of the Oxford scholar poor,
    Of pregnant parts and quick inventive brain,
    Who, tired of knocking at preferment’s door,
    One summer-morn forsook
    His friends, and went to learn the gipsy-lore,
    And roam’d the world with that wild brotherhood,
    And came, as most men deem’d, to little good,
    But came to Oxford and his friends no more.
    Just change Oxford to Westerly and you are good to go.
    Hope to see you in a few months

      Yes, I feel this way at times, except when I have infections in both eyes and just want to curl up in my bed at home. But then I remember I don’t have a home or a bed anymore! Oh, well.

        Yes you do and you don’t even have to share a bathroom with Erin

          I’ve stayed in a lot of questionable places, but that would be pushing it. Thanks!

    Enjoy Portland and SanFrancisco and keep the new ideas flowing- you are good at that!
    The refugee camp is going to be interesting, I’m sure- can’t imagine too many luxuries.
    Count me in on a donation

      I’m trying to prepare myself for the basic accommodations there. Thanks for your support!
