Out of Time!

I had planned to post a larger spread of pictures today but events didn’t work out even though today was technically a holiday.  There were too many people in the hospital I had to see and then I had to finish a report due tomorrow morning.  Maybe in the next couple days I can follow up on my plan.

Website Troubles

I’m currently in southern Cambodia with all of our Deaf Development Programme staff from three provinces, for a staff “retreat,” a chance to talk about some of our values and policies and at the same time allow the staff to meet and enjoy each other.  I have a good Internet connection in the building I am in at the Catholic center, but for some reason my efforts to log into and change my website have been stymied since I arrived–until just now when I found I was able to start creating this new post.  I’ll see now if it goes through, and if it does then I can post some new pages.

Back Again!

Apologies for the long absence!  I arrived back in Phnom Penh Friday morning after a rough trip.  In all the airports I was in (eight of them) I could connect to their free wi-fi but could only get an Internet connection in three of them and two of those were at the beginning and end of the trips.

Then in the US I was hampered both by the unavailability of both time and wi-fi connections.  I have not ever before been so unconnected to the Internet and out of touch.

But now I’m in Phnom Penh and back on a regular schedule so postings should be daily now–unless a glitch reoccurs that for two hours this evening–kept me from being able to log in to the website that hosts this webpage.  We’ll see!

Tinker, tailor, soldier, sailor….

Many of us are familiar with the old nursery rhyme and counting song that sings: Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Sailor, Rich Man, Poor Man, Beggar Man, Thief.  That’s the American version.

Here in Cambodia, we still have tinkers but now they ride motorcycles hung with all the metal implements of their trade.

Unexpected Twists and Turns

Yesterday I came back from Bangkok and was planning to post about Day 2 in the city there but when I got home there were a multitude of disruptions that prevented me from getting to this website.

The same happened again today.  I was preparing this evening to start work on a post here and Mother Teresa’s sisters called and asked me to take a mass for them across town early tomorrow morning.  That meant I had to prepare a homily so that shot the website again.

I’ll get something posted tomorrow, though!
