Welcome! 

August and September came and went in such a flash that it seems impossible we are now official into fall and that October is next week. Because things flew by so quickly I never got around to reposting my blog pieces here. But you can now read four new ones on the blog page. 

It's been a stressful summer for most of us. Here's hoping the fall brings relief and consolation for a country much in need of it. Be well.

Thanks for visiting!

About Tea & Bee's Milk:

If you've ever thought of "escaping" to some remote place, [Tea & Bee's Milk] will certainly give you the courage and perspective to live your dream. As you near the final pages, you'll find yourself wising they'd stay a bit longer, linger just a bit more, head out to the islands just once again. It is a book you'll more than enjoy!      —Charles S

About Camping with the Communists:

An intelligent and enjoyable book filled with history, culture, adventure, and a dash of politics. A great addition to the genre of travel writing, but this book has even more to offer because it was written with honesty, sensitivity, a sense of humor.    —Dave W.
