On our way to Sierra Leone

We are looking forward to spending 3 weeks in Sierra Leone. While we are there we will attend an opening of a new school near Bo which was funded by Schools For Salone. When I was there last time I took pictures for SFS and one of those pictures I am using in the book. The proverb with the picture is "Ignorance preceeds knowledge." Though the children are not in the room you know they have just been there, the lesson is on the board, the potential for learning is there and becoming a reality.

The book is going to print.

I just approved the final proofs and the book is going to print.  Of course, it takes a month to print and a month to ship from Hong Kong so I won't see it for awhile.  Still it is a wonderful feeling to know my dream is coming true.  Now I am in promotion mode and hope to start lining up more events, book signings, etc. for the fall.
