Hello world! Thanks for stopping by. Mother, sister, daughter, friend... For as long as I remember, my e-mail signature has been: Life is an adventure-take detours. For anyone who knows me, I think that would be the fastest way to define who I am. For those that don't know me yet, see below! How would I describe myself? Eclectic. Some of my loves are travel, photography, cooking, reading, teaching ESL, writing, movies and art. I am a self described "global nomad". I have lived in England, Switzerland, Liberia, Ivory Coast, Malaysia and Costa Rica, and now Mexico. In the U.S. we have lived in Maine, Alabama, Connecticut, Illinois, Colorado Virginia and Maryland. I have been told I am honest to a fault. I have also been told I am the human equivalent to the resource center! I am a searcher - in every sense of the word. My goal. To visit MY 1000 places I need to see before I die!
