Well, hello! I have been off the grid for a few days and am happy to get a chance to post today.
I am currently in a hotel in Coban, Guatemala. It has been an amazing and adventurous experience thus far. Before the trip, our Habitat Team Leader kept emphasizing the need to be flexible when building a home here in Central America. She was right! It has become our mantra … that and “It Will Be Okay!” Thus the reason for the song choice today. 🙂
There are many funny, inspiring, interesting stories to share, but I don’t have the patience or energy to deal with the internet to write much today. So, there will be more to come. I do think the perspective this experience is giving me is absolutely invaluable!
The song today is from a rising musical duo out of Brooklyn, New York. Their indie folk style reminds me a bit of The Lumineers. This song is upbeat and catchy and is just full of good vibes. The duo is made up of Mitchy Collins and Danielle Bouchard, both singer- songwriters with excellent voices and an infectious style. Give them a listen, I think you will enjoy.
I am off to bed … after 8 long hours of hauling cinder blocks and sand up a hill, carrying wet concrete in buckets, and moving rocks from one pile to another pile, I am ready for bed! 🙂
