erendipity strikes again. While my daughter’s in an orthodontist appointment this morning, I pick up a magazine I’ve never seen: Outside.
I crack up through the personal essay Who’s Your Daddy by 50-something adventurer Ian Frazier and make a note to look up Outside
online. Back home a few hours later, I stumble across the magazine’s blog
, scroll down a few posts and discover Greg Mortenson of Three Cups of Tea
fame has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. Cool. Then I see a link
; a writer for Outside
magazine not only profiled “Dr. Greg” last year, but went on the road with him. In Afghanistan. I click to the archived piece, see this amazing photograph, and read on. As my youngest (now headed for braces, poor kid) would say, serendipity rocks.
P.S. Thanks to Gerry at TwoBlueDay
for the heads up re: an ABC News piece
on Mortenson aired a few weeks ago. Seems ABC is listening to viewers who want to hear some good news for a change. Maybe in the fall they’ll report Mortenson has indeed won the Nobel Peace Prize.Photo © 2008 Dan Winters
