The semester is over. No more ethics, no more stats. No time for relaxing though.
I’ve written a lot the past four months and explored areas of ethical life that I didn’t even realize existed.
The jury is still out whether or not my personal ethics have changed. I really don’t think so. I do know that I am much more aware of issues that affect our lives everyday, and that to me, is a successful semester.
Now, I embark on a new chapter and another new adventure in my life. Most of you know that one of my greatest passions is traveling. The opportunity to spend two months in Argentina was just too good to pass up.
I leave with an open mind and a grateful heart. I am already falling in love with that country, her history and her people. There is generosity of spirit and life in Argentina and I am anxious to harvest all of the knowledge and wisdom that I can during my two-month stay.
And so this serves as a transition chapter for my blog. I will be updating this frequently while I am away.
I finish with the prayer for travelers that my parish prayed with me this past Sunday:
O God, our heavenly Father whose glory fills the whole creation, and whose presence we find wherever we go: Preserve those who travel; surround them with your loving care; protect them from every danger; and bring them in safety to their journey’s end; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
It is my hope that I can somehow capture my experiences in word, pictures and video and share them with all of you. This will be my first crack at a travel blog.
I hope you enjoy . . .
. . . and for now, a very warm adieu.
