Emergencies and a rainy season
The trainees may well go straight from here to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which is imploding, or to a flooded area in Ethiopia, or to a flood area in Uganda, or a fourth locale. It's very practical training and there sure are a lot of emergencies to respond to. I really do miss my "boss" and the main organizer of these workshops, Sonia, both her spirit and the workload she covers, part of which I am covering. As Jens says, they are lucky to have me. :)
We had a rainbow at sunset as the rain came toward us from the main part of Lake Victoria to the south. Now it’s raining gently.
QIVC, established in 2000, is a community of 30 people of all ages living close to the land on 135 acres of forest and pasture in the upper Hudson Valley. We strive to live spirit-focused lives that are simple, sustainable, and joyful, benefitting from and enjoying our close connections with each other and the land. We welcome diversity of all sorts, and don't all need to identify as Quaker.
