Next week I"m heading to Gautier, MS with 34 near-strangers to spend a week *mucking out* houses and helping re-build and rejuvenate a beautiful part of the world. A friend told me he thought it would be heart breaking. I said I think sometimes you have to break your heart to learn about love again. I plan to use this blog to record my trip for myself, my family, and my friends. If you're interested in one person's perceptions, thoughts, and feelings, then come along!
