026: Leaf Debris

I'm feeling sick today.

I went for a run yesterday, and after had a cold.

I am suspicious! Of the man with a leaf blower who I passed on my run.

On the run, I had to make a snap decision—to continue through this man's leaf blower debris, or to divert direction.

As I sit here with Kleenex overflowing my undersized trash can, I must regretfully say: I ran through it.

Did this man's leaf blower debris give me a cold?

Does an invisible, toxic enemy lie within the air?

These are the questions...

In any event, this story wasn't a preamble to some life lesson.

Just taking it easy this week.

Bai's Email

I mentioned this a couple emails ago, but want to mention again.

I met a friend, Bai, in Sierra Leone back in 2011, and have stayed in touch ever since.

He recently started writing a weekly email, and it's really good.

I'm so excited about this. I think he's on to something.

If the email gets an audience, it would likely be a way for him to get out of Sierra Leone, which he wants to do.

If you check it out and enjoy the writing, feel free to subscribe.

Below is the email he published today:
