Waiting and watching

“The traveler sees what he sees, the tourist sees what he has come to see.”

G.K. Chesterton via Jason Miko’s web page

My three years in the Peace Corps taught me the value of waiting and watching to see what unfolds. Here’s a few moments that unfolded while having coffee in the market this week.


Shoemaker, making things better.
Not so much a throwaway society.
I like the idea of second chances.


Wishful Thinking Works: Create the life you really want.

Patrice Koerper is a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer, who served in Macedonia from 2006-2009. She is happy to have traveled back to Macedonia in the fall of 2010 for two months, where she hosted 5 Americans for 3-4 weeks while visiting friends and working on projects. This year, she is thrilled to return to Macedonia, hosting one American, working and playing in a country she loves. Next, she is heading to the Republic of Georgia for a three month Response Corps assignment with the United States Peace Corps.

Patrice’s main passion and occupation is Wishful Thinking Works life coaching and workshops, which combined with her family and friends, and travels are all part of the life she is really wants.
