The last of the original first footers, James, left John Obey today.  Ben posted a picture of James’ farewell to Facebook that brought a smile to my face and then tears. Not tears of sadness but of deep love for a people and a country.  Looking at all of those faces, remembering conversations, stories and  experiences. It’s not easy to let yourself go.  But there, wow.  How people can get into your soul.  How spending a few weeks with complete strangers can affect you.  Cleanse you.  Recharge you.  Inspire you.  Initially, I was skeptical about the whole tribe thing, but after nearly three weeks immersed in this community, I completely get it.

Love my tribe.
