Panama. Karen and I were in Panama this past week. What an interesting country. The canal, if you have never seen it, it is quite amazing. It is almost unreal to be by the canal near the Gamboa Rainforest and watch very large ships gliding past you on one of the man-made lakes that form part of the canal system. Watching very large ships pass through the lock system at Miraflores as they drop over 50 feet in two stages is quite a process. What is even more significant is that all of this was built over 100 years ago. Almost 1 million ships have transited the canal in that time Think of the foresight this took at that time. A great lesson in looking how change can create a major benefit for a country and for the world. We do not need to take such large steps but we do need to continue to look ahead and plan out futures.

"The high prize of life, the crowning glory of a man is to be born with a bias to some pursuit which finds him in employment and happiness - whether it be to make baskets, or broadswords or canals, or statues, or songs."

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
