A word from Curt
The word is passion.
It’s how I want to live my life.
And you don’t have to come to Africa to live the passionate life.
Part of my formula for the passionate life is journaling. It’s been integral to my life since age 17. I’m now on journal #73. Each weekend, I glean the previous week’s journal entries. I’m sharing them with you with all humility in the hope that these notes, sketches, and shots will encourage you to live the passionate life.
Best story of the week: Our oldest grandson Noah just returned to Alexandria after his family spent two weeks with us. We had a time to remember. Noah is a second grader in a new school. The teacher had a pre-school get acquainted session for students. She asked each student to write the infamous “What I did this summer” paper.
Noah’s mom picked him up and the teacher called her to the side.
“Your son has a vivid imagination.”
Robin nodded. “He sure does.”
“He wrote in his paper all kinds of stories about driving among lions, elephants, and giraffes and rafting on the Nile River.”
