It’s 6 am and Chef Aj is upstairs sleeping in my house! Can you believe it? It’s amazing what the universe will greet you with if you just put yourself out there. Tonight I am hosting a Plant-strong pot luck for my local community so that everyone can meet Aj. I’m really excited. I get a natural high from being around like-minded people and I know tonight will be very special.
But this morning I want to share one last impression of my trip. Something that touched me so deeply that I just can’t shake the feeling that I want to go back.
