Day 1 in South Africa

From the outside it would appear that an airplane flew me over to my new home, but on the inside it feels like I was just carried like a body surfer at a rock concert by everyone who has made an impact on my life and supported me. I am extremely grateful for those, like you, who have carried me to this point and continue to lift me up. I could not accomplish anything with out that support.  Just like Desmond Tutu says, “My humanity is bound up in yours, for we can only be human together.”

Here in Cape Town the weather is warm and the skies are blue.  “24” is on soon too. (Hey, it has only been a day. Not that much has changed.)

It’s so warm. Milk was a bad choice.  The town I’m in has a bunch of coffee shops and you can see a giant mountain from the main road. I believe it is called the giant mountain (not really).

This blog is mostly to say that I have arrived and the trip over was really easy. Thanks to the Keens for the sleeping pills!

In the future each blog should have a theme.  Some will be more interesting than others, but I will try and post often.

  1. You should start every blog with a joke (Most of which are either terrible or make no sense) Then go into deep and profound philosophies. Finally make an observation about American T.V. This strategy is sure to win. Anyways, how are the cougasas? Remember we’re looking for energetic ones willing to do nude scenes. Tell Desmond Tutu that the situation in South Africa (lack of quality television programming) is unacceptable. Go save the world

  2. Sounds like you did great. But that is cause you are great. I can’t wait to hear all your stories. Thanks for the calls yesterday. I felt somewhat better hearing your voice.
    Hawks are winning against the Redwings right now and I am gearing up to see Jack. I hope you can find it. Talk to you tomorrow.
