We have always spent time with natives on our adventures around the world, learning many things from them that Western cultures cannot offer. We have learned techniques for carving shell, bone, and coconut. In return we have taught them some things, but the real joy comes from the exchange of basic skills, the thrill of discovery, and the knowledge that all people are really the same.
We all love our families and worry about where the next meal will be coming from. We give thanks for all that we have. Thats really what this trip is about, isn't it? Taking care of yourself and your family while making sure to give thanks for the many blessings that you do have, not wasting time on things that have been or could be.
If life is what is happening right now, then I do need to say thank you for some things... this amazing world I live in, the wonderful people that surround me, fresh ideas, endless inspiration, past and future adventures, the love of my friends and family, and the knowledge that I am doing exactly what I am supposed to be doing. What a truly amazing day. Enjoy yours.
