This blog began as a collection of short essays and journal writings related to a book I have been working on called DIG WHERE YOU ARE – And you will change the world. It is a narrative of my going to find seven people in the world who are solving problems where well funded organizations and governments have failed. The book is finished and you can read about it on another site www.digwhereyouare.com
While I was working on DIG WHERE YOU ARE I began writing about other things I had experienced in my life, particularly during the years when I travelled across the world as President of The International Forum. So this site has evolved and is now the repository for pieces about people and places I have known in the world. It also includes the occasional piece about being a mom, a late-in-life competitive athlete and a casual observer of every day life in western civilization in the 21st century.
