The Countdown Continues

Only five days till we depart for Jordan. Trying hard to be patient and stay focused on everything that needs to be finished before I leave. Mostly succeeding.

I’ll leave you with this picture from Petra. The rather stoic looking donkey provides my inspiration: patient, focused, ready. I almost added “asleep” but somehow that doesn’t convey quite the right image. It’s difficult to imagine how a donkey can stand so patiently, until you realize the alternative is carrying tourists up and down the 800 stone steps to the “Monastery” at Petra. Sort of puts things into perspective.
