EKPHRASTIC: Ekphrasis comes from the Greek, for the written description of a work of art. 

Bring on the Hot Weather

I'm off to El Salvador in the early a.m. I'm going with a group from Habitat Charlotte, where I used to work. It's the same gig as my 2007 trip to Santa Ana Department and I'm looking forward to seeing some familiar faces while building houses there.

The standout thing about my trip last time, and one I expect will be true again, is how very authentically nice the people are in El Salvador. We, in this country, truly do have everything - in places like El Salvador, they frankly don't. I expect the trip to again be a lesson in humility and an opportunity for appreciating one's own good fortune.

Pictures to come on my return.
