Last week I had the analogy of falling into a crowd with closed eyes. It takes a collective effort to sustain me, as to discourage me. This morning it clearly occurred to me that I could be working somewhere with people who actually have the will to collaborate, accomplishing much more and earning real money. I've been a volunteer exactly one year! I've another to go but if I'm not getting effective work done I'll be ok moving on sooner. We're going to Abem for a village meeting to talk about aides. I'm sure by nightfall I'll feel more accomplished.
