Finding the Silver Lining at the Ferry Building

Saturday night. I was sitting at a bar with a fellow volunteer and new friend, Maria, having a glass of wine when we got word that hundreds of refugees were stranded outside at the port because ferries had been cancelled or rescheduled for the next morning. There was an abandoned building next to the port that they were camped out in as they waited out a pretty strong wind storm. They needed some help and supplies like blankets and food brought down, so we called a friend with a car and hitched a ride to the ferry building.

Where Did You Go, 2015?

Yesterday, when I started writing this post, it was the last day of 2015. Where did this year go? So much has happened, and so much hasn't either. I've been getting all of the "end of the year" type of posts from different places; online retailers I frequent, social networks I'm part of, updates from friends and family... The end of the year is a common time for people to pause, reflect and share the lessons they've learned. To be honest, I don't even know where to start. The past few months have been a blur and I barely think I've had time to breathe or sleep, let alone process what's going on. But that's my life and I've chosen to be that way. No complaints, just sharing observations.
