What Kind of Love? March 24, 2007

Posted by TimTheFoolMan in Family, Friends, Love, Parenting/Children, Self-Worth.

Lately, I’ve been asking myself about the nature of love. No, not THAT nature… the “collapse of ego boundaries” (as Scott Peck describes it) and all of its ramifications between two people. I’m not thinking specifically about romantic love here either.


What are the limits of love? What should those limits be? (more…)

Out of Africa March 20, 2007

I’m back from the trip, and am almost coherent again. I spent about 8 days in Djibouti, and the rest of my time in Addis-Ababa, Ethiopia. All in all, it was a wonderfully productive trip. I enjoyed lots of time elbow-to-elbow with my childhood best friend, and he and I accomplished a lot while we were there.

I took lots of pictures, but for now, here are a couple that I snagged with my camera phone:


(OK, that wasn’t taken in Africa. That’s the business end of a Ford GT sitting in the Dubai airport.)


That’s a panorama of three images I took of the Ghourbet, which is part of the Gulf of Arden. To see exactly where I was when I took that pic, the Google Map location is here.

The last picture is of the small island that you can see in the Google map. I took this pic, standing in a few inches of water, roughly at the center of the map, looking East.

Incommunicado March 1, 2007

I’m about to be “away” for an extended period. I’m heading to East Africa with a childhood best friend to help with some hunger-relief projects, help him move to a new house, and help him tie up some odds and ends related to the move. I’ll be offline, for the most part, until late on the 14th.

Don’t trash the place up too bad while I’m out. 😉 – Tim
