Journal Entry

.......you would think that when i got home, i would have more time for this journal....think again! and you would think that posting photos on postholer would be at least as easy as it was in south america....think again! i have been more than busy. and now that i have a mac, the photos go into iphoto and there is an extra operation which i have just figured out but have no time to devote to filling the photos in at the moment...perhaps check back in about a month! geez.

anyhow, i want to close the text portion of this journal with a brief "what have i learned???" --------

~~~i have learned that being in raw, uncivilized nature heals me.

~~~i have learned that true listening and being heard is priceless.

~~~i have learned that travel for me is not an extravagance, but a neccesity for my soul.

~~~i have learned that I have a high threshold for physical discomfort.

~~~i have learned that i have a low threshold for emotional discomfort.

~~~i have learned that i am lazy when it comes to learning a new language.

~~~i have learned that one can communicate in many other ways if necessary.

~~~i have learned that i can practice patience daily (not easy!)

~~~i have learned that i love the country of chile.

~~~i have learned that going to sleep with the sound of water, the wind, or silence is precious.

~~~i have learned that waking up to ice inside the tent, sore hips and wet shoes is precious too.

~~~i have learned that it is possible to really enjoy "whatever arises" beyond accepting and rejecting one's experience. what a joy this is.
