Iceland Away!

Had our first, and possibly only, face to face meeting before we're off flying to Iceland. Almost two hours in length, but extremely productive. I think we're going to be a good team. As soon as I get a copy of the photo from Jan van Asselt I'll put it on the blog.

What's got me excited is not only the prospect of being in this wonderfully rugged and foreign land for a month, but being there with a group that could become close friends.

What's got me sad is that I have to leave my wife behind for a month. I love traveling with her. She has a way of making every trip an adventure.

What's got me nervous isn't the eruption of Eyafjallajokull: it's all I have to finish before going to Iceland on May 24 - much of it has to be done quickly. Someone, some power, some authority - PLEASE give me a 26 hour day or two to get caught up!

MAIN CONCERN: KEEP BREATHING!
WHO IS ASSIGNING YOUR TASKS ANYWAY?
OUR SOCIETY IS MADE UP OF SELF-ASSIGNMENTS, OR OUR COLLECTIVITY HANDS THEM OUT. WHAT IF WE BEGAN RESTRUCTURING OUR COLLECTIVITY AND SLOWED DOWN TO LIVE.
CARL, 24 HOUR STRUCTURES ARE ALSO A COLLECTIVITY DECISION, BUT IT MORE OR LESS FITS WITH THE CYCLE OF THE SUN. MAYBE NOT SO WELL IF YOU ARE FROM iceland.
I SPENT A GOOD DAY WITH THE TEAM YESTERDAY...FINE FOLKS, HOPE ALL OF YOU WILL MEET THEM IN ICELAND.
TIME TO LET THE HOLY SPIRIT SPEAK TO ME THIS MORNING. BE IN TOUCH WITH GOD! S/HE IS ALREADY THERE, JUST KNOCK ON THE ALL ENCOMPASSING- CONSCIOUSNESS DOOR! JAN
P.S. YOU ALL WILL BE A WONDERFUL TEAM;THANKS FOR ALL COMING ON SUNDAY, APRIL 18, TO THE TOWN OF BELOIT.
