My hometown

My hometown

I enjoy writing, traveling, and teaching . . . not necessarily in that order.  Some of my best adventures have been when I was able to combine the three: teach overseas and then write about the cultural interactions.  When I’m not able to roam the globe and bump into others from different cultures, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.  Some of these poor souls have even given me permission to turn them into blog material, so great is their motivation to help me in my writing endeavors.

I grew up in the South Georgia/North Florida area; and after some time spent in Kentucky for college, Athens for grad school, and Southeast Asia for teaching, I find myself back in my old stomping grounds, watching deer out of my kitchen window and navigating a town so small that one caution light can handle the traffic.  This fact alone is evidence of God’s amazing sense of humor.  But while I hope to find myself someplace else in the future, I’ve decided to find contentment in the present.  And maybe you’ll enjoy some of the experiences I have along the way.
