Well the traveling journal in China last year was great fun so... Round 2! Africa!
My friend Callie again began the journal, sharing some words of her own as well as others (including our commencement speaker/my hero John Wood!) in 40+ pages of a little marble composition book.  At the party before I left, some other very special friends added their contributions.  I promised not to read ahead and only read them as they came in sequence as I wrote.  Like last year, I've decided to post excerpts from the wonderful journal online even though you won't find the same torn pages, pressed leaves, and collected mementos that fall from the well-loved pages.
