Do You Like Watching Cooking Shows?

 I have one for you.

This is a YouTube video sent to me from a reader on my https://Travels with

It is Roasting a Chicken in Borneo.

It starts slowly with a girl riding a moped through the Borneo jungle. Eventually, she comes to a hut where she proceeds to prepare a chicken for the family meal. As the family—a young couple, a boy, grandma—became involved in its preparation, I, from across the globe, became mesmerized. And I wanted to share their experience.

(Cut and paste.)

With a Smart Phone we are connected around the world. Not only do we have the ability to call almost anywhere, we have the Internet and a camera in a device small enough to place in our pocket. (And, I remember when calling abroad took about 8 hours from call to connect.)

In my little corner of the world, I sit at my computer and let fly whatever comes to me. You wonderful people are one precipitant of my barrage. I want to share, but not inundate you, for I get about two feet of emails daily. Not fun stuff, though. Basically deletable. But once in a while, something comes through, like a note from one of you guys or from that young girl who sent me a video of her roasting a chicken.

As you search through your emails, I’m hoping Tuesdays with Jo comes up as one of the fun ones.

Like spaghetti thrown at the ceiling, I’ve been throwing my work, that is, inclinations that come to me, to see if it sticks.

This is what I have been doing this past week:


“Out beyond ideas of right-doing and wrongdoing, there is a field. I’ll meet you there. I’ll be the one lying flat on my back with my earphones on, fast asleep. Jostle me gently to wake me up, because I don’t want to miss the next stage of our adventure.” –Rumi
