I can not resist the belly button


It makes me smile, which balances out my day a bit.

My friend returned from Kenya this weekend. I’d been worried when I heard the news reports. Still, I thought, what’s the likelihood he’s in the thick of it all?

Never challenge the odds.

Kip is back and safe. But he almost wasn’t. It’s a bit surreal how those news reports can suddenly be sitting across from you in a chair in your office.

His experiences just amaze me. I’m completely in awe of the way he handled them. The presence of mind he had, the risks he took, the magical way some things just seemed to fall into place.

My brave friend is back in boring old Michigan. Right where he belongs.
