New Blog Launched

When I first started this blog, I had no idea how many readers I would wind up with. It started as a way to keep in touch with family and friends; then I added the goal of assisting others who planned to move abroad, specifically to South Korea. I have readers now who are Asians living in America that like to read about their homeland, people who are just curious about other lands, and even teachers who like to hear about my experiences with the children. It's amazing and wonderful to have so many readers, and I love getting to hear from those of you who post comments or track me down on Facebook.

Since coming here to Korea, I have gained some unique perspectives on the Christian life, which I feel compelled to share. As many of my readers are not Christians, and I do not wish to force my religion on anyone, I decided it would be best to start a second blog to share these thoughts and insights. So, I have now started a second blog: For those who are interested, please feel free to check it out. For those who aren't, I hope you'll continue to enjoy this blog.

"Passage—immediate passage! the blood burns in my veins! Away, O soul! hoist instantly the anchor!
Cut the hawsers—haul out—shake out every sail!
Have we not stood here like trees in the ground long enough?
Have we not grovell’d here long enough, eating and drinking like mere brutes?
Have we not darken’d and dazed ourselves with books long enough?

Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!
Reckless, O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me;
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.

O my brave soul!
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy, but safe! Are they not all the seas of God?
O farther, farther, farther sail!"

~Walt Whitman, "Passage to India"
