Musings from Lifebridge
All of this blog activity plus another inspiration talk from Remy about the importance of blogging has left me with the need to make a post..
I sit now at the top of the Lifebridge stairs listening to the voices of John and Michelle, along with the new India students about to take a walk outside in the snow, float up towards me. We ate chili and hot dogs, did the rope exercise and the strange role playing game, talked about itinerary and health and safety (no slideshow with rabid dog this time!), and I cannot believe these new faces that surround me ready to take the same amazing steps the eight of us took six months ago.
They don't seem as nervous as we were and even though there are only six of them (five here now because one is already in India) there wasn't even a seven minute silence occurrence. They're all excited, all smart and lively, and all seem more then capable of meeting the challenges and blossoming within this new experience. I am so excited for them, and yet so moved when I think of them being in those places and having those moments that I shared with you. Will they feel the same way? Will they form those same bounds we now feel stretching over across the world between us? It's amazing to think about all the different possibilities a trip like this can and will take. Good luck to you all Tracy. I can't wait to stalk you on your new blog (they're moving ours tonight from current to something else... the nerve!)
I wondered up to that amazing room this afternoon at the top of this center and gazed out over the Catskills. They are so beautiful, and I once again felt that feeling I had in India that the world is just so glorious that it truly can wipe away all of our fears and discontents with one glance at it's excellence.
My love goes with all of you in your moments of exploration, confusion, discovery, enlightenment, sadness, fear and joy.
Cheers for Team Jordan, and all the others who are pushing the limits.
