Okay, not an original title! But, it is fitting and it feels right to round out my experience by sharing with you what it has been like for me in the last 30 hours. How do I bring the learning from this trip into my every day moments? Are there really “every day moments”? Somehow I hear in that phrase the word, “ordinary”. Okay, it isn't there.

We are blessed to have our leadership colleague, Kim, with us from London and Maria's “niece-in-law” Eva, to support us.
Are we ready?
Well… I made it! Down to the center of Warsaw and back on the train. I even walked around a bit and took some pictures to prove it. Now, Dorothy, the Lawrence alumna in Poland, helped with that by providing an even easier map to follow than the one Maria had already supplied. Needless to say, I didn't do this trip “alone'!
