Summer and Fall 2015

Travels to Cuba, Turkey, Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia, New England, Amish regions and the wilds of Washington State. Canoeing through bird-rich Eastern Washington wetlands, shopping Amish yard sales, watching baseball with tobacco-growing camposinos, climbing calcium deposits worn smooth by time, walking beaches across from the island of Lesbos, and marveling at mosques in Sarajevo were some of many rich experiences that will feed my writing in the coming months. Looking forward to a new school year and time for reflection on recent journeys.
