Guides Guiding the Guided

We have been guided more the last 6 months, than in the rest of our life put together.  We have had some great guides:
  • Smarts
  • Immanuel
  • Chica
  • Brown Sugar
  • Kennedy
  • Seeko

We have been uniformly impressed with their knowledge.  Most of them are excellent people-persons, with appealing personalities.

It certainly is great to have a guide.  They know the safety issues, and how to stay out of trouble. They can answer questions and identify birds, animals, trees.  I know because I have asked a LOT of questions.  I get my money's worth.

Wouldn't it be great if there were guides to steer us through life.  If these guides knew the safety issues and how to stay out of trouble.  If the guides knew the important stuff-- not the difference between a drongo and a bee eater, but the difference between good choices and bad.

Immanuel gave us a bit of the history to explain the origin of the pans.  That was useful.  A guide with a historical perspective on life would be handy too.  Yeah, a guide who could answer questions harder than identifying trees and animals; that would be handy.

Hmm, maybe such a guide to life exists... and the guide doesn't even expect a tip.  Hmmm.
