This evening we closed the day with a writing exercise and I recognized the generosity and love present in this community. I am very moved by who these women are. I have had an incredible time so far, and am eager for more....including more bananas....:)
I am so grateful for being on this trip and realize through who I have had the opportunity to meet, that I am in the perfect place. I shared with the group tonight that I feel surprisingly present and recognize myself as being at home because home exists inside the walls of my skin.....So I am very comfortable here.
Some highlights from the day....we traveled to a wildlife reserve and saw the CUTEST monkeys!!!! Then I spoke to some women who were dealing with problems at their volunteer positions, one was from Malawi and another from the UK...I hope I made a difference...
For dinner we went to Sue's sons house, which was beautiful and met his family, and with 3 women who have spearheaded the Voice Flame Writers mission here or wrote essays. I think all would agree we engaged in amazing conversation and learned a great deal about what women are dealing with here.
Karen and I are inspired to work with girls who are not achieving their education because of multiple reasons......and Carissa and I ended the evening with an incredible talk about our futures, life and all the possibilities!!!!
YAYA!!! Malawi is awesome!!!
