Departure Date: December 20, 2008

It's been a while, no doubt about that. Many months passed, two seasons even - as proven by the twirling snowflakes out my office window earlier this afternoon. The snow itself almost seemed to apologize for its premature visit, greeted by gasps of Washingtonians in denial about the coming winter months. My fingers are freezing and feel pretty stiff. I'll blame that on the teensy bit of anxiety I'm feeling about re-entering the blogosphere after such a long absence. Please bear with me; there is a purpose for this writing.

In about one month I'll be heading out on the road for a different kind of journey. A prolonged one, at that. I'm packing up my house and office, keeping half of my work responsibility, sending little Henry Ford to his doting grandparents, and jumping ship. As Dad always advises, I've got an outline.

My friend Kevin wrote me last week regarding one piece of my journey, where I'll teach yoga to a growing group of new yogis in Uganda. He told me "Kampala is so ready for you."

And I am so ready for this.

I came upon your blog when my daughter was in Gulu with Invisible Children and you were in Gulu at the time . We liked your substainable project and had been following your progress untill you dropped off the Earth. Thought perhaps Joey Koni abducted you like in Blood Diamond.
Check out Meghan and NURU at

I just happened upon our blog this morning and found your Ugandan activities quite fascinating. It sounds like you are a fellow Buckeye, in which case, "Go Bucks!" in the Fiesta Bowl.

I will be heading for Kampala January 8 for a couple of weeks, teaching conferences on Christian education. Teaching in Uganda is starting to become a regular activity for me, but always rewarding. Keep up the good work.
