Tales of (mis)adventure from abroad

It was around midnight. I focused on their voices to make out each of their approximate position around my tent. I silently crouched forward in a sprinter’s starting position, gripping my axe down on the ground. I had managed to outmaneuver them the entire day, but they had finally found me. The three horse thieves had ridden into my camp a few minutes ago, whooping and kicking pots around, like a band of Wild West outlaws. They wanted my horse and anything else they could get their hands on. Surprisingly, I wasn’t scared anymore. I was calm and ready.

    Well, it’s a looooong and incredible story, and you’ll have to ask me in person or see my documentary film (coming to a theatre near you in November 2009) to find out the details. But I’ll just say that against all odds, 4 angels came to my rescue, and basically saved my life.

    I’m happy to hear about your trying to be minimal in many parts of your life. It’s a good philosophy I think. I wish more people did. Even though I know I fail miserably in some areas of trying to live minimally, I do what I can to live responsibly.

    LOL where do you “fail miserably”? Your excessive consumption of home-made lasagne? 😉
    … Anyway, the rest of that story is definitely worth hearing!

    LOL 😀 hmmm…Actually, the size of my house (and of my bed): definitely not minimal… And yes, the home-made lasagna too.
