In my last post, I talked about opportunity. In 2013, I had the opportunity to go to Japan and Taiwan as an Eisenhower Fellow. Many of my posts on this blog document the flow of ideas and thoughts this experience generated in me. I met new people, I ate new things (LOTS of new things), I even wore new things (I’m on my way to traditional baths in this photo–a wonderfully relaxing experience). My Eisenhower Fellowship truly changed my life and my POV. If you are in agriculture, you may have what it takes to be an Eisenhower Fellow–you’ll never know unless you try. The 2015 application period is open now. I encourage you to explore it further. After all, life is a journey, not a destination (thanks, Ralph).
