I am 10 days short of a year here in Ocotal, embedded for the first time in the world of "development". And my loosely-defined, altruistic ambitions have been challenged and I am disappointed. I am trying to work out how to make lemonade from the remaining lemons that haven't been spoiled.
I have been debating with myself for days about how to write this blog, balancing a number of concerns:
No more debating! I will dive right in with some random though clearly connected thoughts and feelings, based on my clearly limited experience.
So I will try to sit with this discomfort and doubt and be present to today's opportunities, trusting that a loving and thoughtful approach will lead to some clarity.
“At the end of the day, the questions we ask of ourselves determine the type of people that we will become.”

You came to mind today and after spending the last hour reading through your blog posts I had two thoughts come over me: 1. You are amazing. 2. Don't lose heart.

I sold house, car and most of my furniture to move to the small town of Ocotal in Las Segovias on the Honduras/ Nicaragua border.
