Project CO #2: Welcome to CO

 imagesCAXJI0PTThe sun was shining brightly over the mountains as my plane landed in Denver – wohoo, sunshine!

However, as I rode the shuttle bus from the terminal, the driver reported, “Enjoy it while it lasts, in just two hours the temperature is going to drop 40 degrees. “  What?

 

The All Hands Volunteers work week starts on Tuesday at 8:00 am – that’s tomorrow already! I’ve a day to stop in Golden to visit my brother before heading up to base camp in Longmont in the morning.

During a gorgeous afternoon walk along Clear Creek with my brother Ken and Mocha the wonder-dog, the temperature abruptly dropped from 65 to 32 degrees.

And then the snow began to fall…..

The thought of working on a job site in 30 degree temps makes me cringe.

In many ways, this is going to be a different experience than Haiti and El Salvador.

Last thought for the day…..

What do you think of this quote?

Citizen Architect: The Citizen Architect uses his/her insights, talents, training, and experience to contribute meaningfully, beyond self, to the improvement of the community and human condition.”

My brother said, “That sounds a bit esoteric.” I guess he meant that it sounds vague or cryptic. Perhaps he’s right – the phrase alone doesn’t really say all that much.  Well then, it a mission – to discover what that means in the “real world.”

Thanks big brother – I love you.
