I now respond to lifelines, rather than deadlines. Lifelines connect me to my passions. The web of color designed by nature. The soul satisfaction of playing djembe in a circle of drummers. The outrage that almost every nation in the world is a source or destination country for girls trafficked into sexual slavery. The urgency of getting smarter about how to stop despoiling the environment. How seeing a stand of moss-covered trees infuses spirit right into me.
I hope you’ll enjoy cruising through some of my passions, near and far. For more information about any of the people or places you see here, email me. I also welcome your comments online.
