Too Many Ideas - Haiti Part 1

It's Tuesday and I am joining The Two Writing Teachers in making writing a way of life.  Won't you consider joining us?

Too Many Ideas - Haiti Part 1

What do you do when you have too much to write about? 

That’s what I am thinking as I sit here on the tarmac at the Port Au Prince airport. I traveled here for a trip to visit our twin parish in Sucrerie Henry, a small village an hour outside of Les Caye, Haiti. My mind is numb and tired from all that I have experienced on this five day mission. Lack of sleep will be catching up with me shortly but for now I write quickly and with mixed feelings of joy and sadness.

This was my first visit to Haiti and I am certain it will not be my last. The sights, sounds, and aromas will make for many a "slice" post for sure. But first I must sleep and process all that I have experienced and felt. I am comforted in knowing that all my writing will be my guide as I try to make sense of all that is swirling around in my head.  

There is one thing I know for certain  - I am changed because of my time with the people of Haiti.


  1. I am sure it will take some time to process all you learned and what you feel. I look forward to some future slices about Haiti.

  2. Many March slices to come... look forward to reading them all. Rest and reflect... until next week!
