the interesting idea... the start of this project... the conversations to come

I'm a member of Post Crossing, the internet site for postcard exchange. I sent a card to another Post Crosser, Ilona from Germany. She asked that people tell her which magical power they would like to have. Her question really made me think!

In turn, I thought it would be an interesting project to ask people to pose Thought-Provoking Questions. I would do my best to answer with my opinion, and I would encourage others to add theirs.

And, so was born this blog! I hope that it will be the home for many interesting conversations in the year ahead!

Greetings from Uganda

Where Katja wonders

Why the African countries are not more developed, now that they are free. Or is "our" way simply not "their" way?

She closes the postcard by saying "I, myself, learn a lot here." And that, I think, somehow answers the question. There is a lot to learn in considering the differences that exist around us in the world. Several recent cards have focused on that issue, and I find that I really do not have a good answer!
Katja, by the way, is the number one postcrosser from Uganda, and this card is only the 250th card sent from there.
