Something to Talk About

What do you talk about on a 3-day trek among remote hill tribes in Thailand? The bridge across the communication gap can lead to misunderstanding or growth, anger or laughter. That's the subject of my 3-part series: "Something to Talk About: When Soul Travelers Meet Hill Tribes." http://girlstrektoo.com/blog/?p=96

I'm posting this here because I think it might be of interest to women on PulseWire. I'll be back soon to write a special post specifically for PulseWire.

Enchanting

As always, I sit enraptured by your stories and feel as if I were there with you in the room with One Tuft and Ugghhrr. Your openness for anything, whether it be unveiled entrances or enraged elephants, is inspiring and I can't wait to read part two. Thank you for taking us along on your nomadic adventures and opening our eyes to new wonders in far-off places. Best wishes,
Janice

Honored by your comment

Janice, I'm honored by your kind comments about my stories. Given the profound subjects you comment on in your journal - such as a woman finding healing for her MS by giving to others, or a 12-year-old maid/slave dying at the hands of cruel employers - I hardly know how to react except to get a little teary-eyed at the idea that my little observations on the lighter side of the big bad world has also found a place in your attention. I feel humbled. Thanks and...

Take care,
Cara

You never cease to amaze me with the opportunies you give girls to express themselves creatively! I, like Janice, look forward to reading your second part.

The voices of girls need to be heard and you are a great catalyst for that need- you are truely changing the world. I am honored to be your friend here on PulseWire and to be a woman standing with you in the fight for opportunities and right for women and girls.

Much Peace and Love,

Sharese

Energized

Sharese,

I always find the support of powerful women like you so energizing. Thanks for suggesting that I might even push around a few molecules of the world for the better. I know it's something you make an effort to do, too. I'm certain that together we can all change much more than that.

Take care,
Cara
