40 days


40 days is a significant period of time.  Noah was in the ark for 40 days.  Jesus was in the wilderness 40 days.  Moses was on the mountain 40 days.   Muhammed was in a cave for 40 days,  Goliath talked smack about the Israelites for 40 days before David showed up.

There is something special about 5-and-a-half weeks time.  It is traditionally seen as a time of preparation or waiting prior to an emergence or an enlightenment or a purification.

Today marks T minus 40 days and counting to Kilimanjaro.   We are in preparation.  We are in training.  We are in waiting.  In 40 days the Roaming Parkers will embark.

Stay tuned to see what comes down from the mountain and emerges from the wilderness.
