Bosnia

overcast 60 °F

I'm in Mostar, Bosnia. Known to the world for the destruction to it's iconic footbridge in the Bosnian war of '92-'95.
I'm here awaiting an update from the aid organization that I've been in touch with. It's a fluid situation. Like their occupants, the camps seem to be in motion. Last week was told I should plan to head near the border with Macedonia. A few days ago learned I may be needed closer to the border with Croatia. Hope to have some confirmation by morning.

Just recieved the confirmation I've been hoping for...
After a stop off In Sarajevo tomorrow AM to buy as many plastic rain poncho's as I can find, I'm on to the village of Opatovac, Croatia which lies on the banks of the Danube separating it from Serbia.

So, what is the socio-political climate in that part of the world currently? Is it relatively safe and calm for an American citizen to be there? Take good care, Coulter! Always remember, your Creator is guiding you and watching after you, my friend.

Thanks for your good wishes, Like my chances here a lot more than if I was in Ferguson Missouri, nearly any school room cafeteria, megaplex theater, or college campus.

Good to hear you're safe, Coulter. Thank you for letting me know. How long are you planning to stay over in that part of the world?

All the best,
Masrhal

Brother grande e forte

Great to read that you are perusing your vision, dreams and goals. We had our first fires the last two days. The fields are becoming greener after a magnificent storm. The wedding was one of the finest ever. Next Sunday nella stalla di Casa RoseWoods, there will be a Italian Festival gratitude party to thank all the volunteers.

May you sleep profoundly every night, avoid all illnesses, escape all accidents and consume exciting & rare delicacies

May your mission fill you with mega joys and satisfactions that will contribute to new and fresh directions.

Ms. Rose and the gnarly ol'goat miss you immensely - the table is always set for you.

Arise and shine as never before

Your most crotchety ancient bro

Coulter,
On Monday I heard that the rain and cold is making it really difficult for the families that are stuck at the borders trying to cross. Those rain ponchos will really be needed. Hope you can buy arm loads and get to the folks that are in such need of them. We keep you in our prayers for safe keeping!
