One of the stories that I did not include in my book was when I went bungy jumping at the head of the Nile in Uganda. I felt like I was dying. I wondered if my feet would slip out of the contraption that was lined with simple, ragged towels. But then I jumped and I couldn't un-jump.
Doing this book thing is kinda like that.
I am very honored to have a guest blog post over at Missing in the Mission, a very cool aid work (and more) blog. Please check out my piece, but also the whole blog. Lotsa good stuff: "A blog for and by aid workers, about the process of taking care of ourselves and each other."
