Not too long ago, when I met people during my travels, I made friends, shared a few experiences, and quite likely never saw or heard from them again.
The internet has changed all that, lowering the cost and barriers to communication, so that it's much easier these days to keep in touch.
For instance, I received this photo via email from Pat, whom I met in Lembeh a couple of years ago at Kasawari Lembeh Resort.
She and her husband are in their 70s and are going strong...travelling the world for diving and other activities. At the resort, they were fun, enthusiastic about every fish and other animal we stumbled across, and just filled with postive energy.
In fact, they left a lasting impression upon me, reminding me of how fortunate I am, and how valuable every moment and experience is.
So if you're anywhere near Tulsa and want to take a look at my book, you know where to go!
Thanks Pat and Bob...for donating the book, and for being an inspiration.
