    Great quotes Jacqui. I would like to use the Malcolm Gladwell one, whose book Outliers I just bought at the airport and read on the plane to japan. It is an amazing book and talks about the lucky breaks, and the huge network of support that is behind outstanding successes. The driver depicted in this picture agreed to drive us to Miyak Kongka, a one day drive, and eneded up staying with us for at least three days, not even phased that he hadn’t a chance to pack, a change of clothes, a comb…
    Spontaneity and acceptance of whatever will be. Maktub!
