3 cups of tea
a couple of weeks ago i started listening to the audio of greg mortenson's "3 cups of tea". greg was a mountain climber who fell in love with the landscape and people of northern pakistan in the early 1990's. he set out to build a school for the children of korphe (a project that turned into many schools). he is a conduit for me. opening up a fascinating and mysterious world.
coincidently, my little book club chose this book as our next read. i set aside the audio feeling that i should be reading the book. but yesterday, knowing how much i need to spin and knit before i go away at the end of the month, i treated myself to the audio as i spun. a deliscious afternoon... and then i took the book to bed with me last night.
