My Peace Corps memoir, At Home On the Kazakh Steppe, is out — ten years after Woody and I joined Peace Corps.
It has its own page here on my website, with photos, an excerpt from Chapter One, links for purchasing, and information on upcoming readings.
I hope you’ll take a look.
“And Lot’s wife, of course, was told not to look back where all those people and their homes had been. But she did look back, and I love her for that, because it was so human. So she was turned into a pillar of salt. So it goes.”
― Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five
Human foibles, frailties, and conundrums surround us. I write here about them. I’m particularly interested in stories of:
- mid-life changes,
- transitions, connections, and travel,
- cultural differences and
- Kazakhstan (where I served as a Peace Corps volunteer from 2004 to 2006).
— not all at once and not necessarily in that order.
Periodically, I publish one of the many deleted scenes from At Home on the Kazakh Steppe.
And So It Goes began in January, 2013 and it is still a work in progress. But then, aren’t we all?
My goal for the Blog is to encourage conversation, communication, and community. To that end, I hope you’ll leave a comment.
There are over 240 million websites out there. I’m glad you found mine. Wander, explore, read, enjoy. And drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
