>The current primary purpose of this blog is for me to efficiently communicate and keep in touch with family and friends. I recently accepted a job working for a NGO named Shoulder to Shoulder in rural western Honduras. I’ll likely be living abroad for just under a year and this should be a good way to keep those I care about abreast of the goings on in my life.
Beyond that primary purpose, I hope that the public nature of blogging will help me to intentionally integrate an aspect of reflection into this experience. My life has changed dramatically and I would like to engage with and share all of the important thoughts and feelings I will have over the next year. Those that know me best may be somewhat surprised by this, but that should be an incentive to post frequently and intelligently.
Finally, once I settle in and learn more about the people, culture, history, politics, and economics of Honduras, this may also become a forum for me to share more formal observations on living and working in this country. I tend to be quite careful in reaching any conclusions, so it may be a while before I have anything to say on these points. For now, please read, comment, and enjoy.
