One Way, and twenty-one  are two of those proverbial signs in our lives.

For sure it is one way that we go in this life, and that is through it.  And we should enjoy it as we go.  All too often we are in a hurry and rush this life along and don’t take the proverbial time out to smell the flowers along the way.

She looked just a few years older than me, which would put her in her early fifties. I could see loaves of unwrapped bread sticking out of her shopping bag. I took the bread as a sign that I wouldn’t go without the basics if she was to be my host family.  But  would that extend to hot water and toilet paper? (Both had been scarce during my first six weeks in Almaty.

Sharla Shults's insight:

The author, Joyce Elferdink, is currently a writer and communications instructor, but was one of the first Peace Corps volunteers to go to Kazahstan. Her role during 1993-94 was to set up small business develop centers to assist people who for the first time could become entrepreneurs.
