The More Important Stories

Follow the Compassion Bloggers in Peru

No words here again today.

Sorry.

It's just anything and everything

And nothing is forming into words.

I think they call this writer's block.

It's okay, though.

Really.

Because there are much more important words,

Much more important stories

Going on this week.



Take a step with me

Outside of this comfortable world

To catch just a glimpse

Through someone else's eyes.
