I just went on a field trip to Casablanca with 15 of the best artists in the orphanage. It was a great experience. We were fed a fantastic lunch (FOR FREE!!!). Then, after walking around the campus of the country club, the kids were given an endless supply of good paper and paint. They painted for two full hours. It is incredible how many people want to give to these kids. This is at least the fourth group that I’ve seen interacting with the kids in a big way–and I have only been here for four weeks. They come from a tough background, but they have an incredible upbringing in this place.
Another day, another memory:
Day Seven: Lightening in the Cemetery
I was going to use yesterday evening to edit my heart out. Instead, this happened. The storm was moving so slow. I watched it for nearly an hour as it slowly approached town. Then, when it finally hit, I had way to much fun. Lots of rotation in the clouds, plenty of hail, and some of the heaviest rain I have ever experienced. This is easily the best storm of the year.
I’m going to try to get back on track today. I have a lot to do before I can sit down and edit…but I’m going to get that out of the way right after I finish this update. I want to get at least another 10-15 pages done today. I’m also kind of jealous of my friend Jordan. She already uploaded her second day of the Memory Project. I never got around to it. Maybe I should just start today. I will let you know…
