The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me and buckle up!


Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton


Lisbon, August 2018


I was born in Brooklyn, New York in 1959. I've lived in several different places, but this is the first time I have resided overseas. My career has gone in multiple directions; however, education is my passion. My Ph.D. in Higher Education Administration from New York University has opened many doors and for that I am grateful. Writing has become a pastime I enjoy and hope to further pursue. The future holds no limitations and I am keeping all of my options open. I have landed in Portugal and there is a vast and beautiful world to explore.


  1. Hello my friend. I read both the posts this morning having my coffee. I can hear the happiness ad excitement of this new chapter and adventure in your words. Patience is a virtue we all benefit from when it is truly embraced.


  2. Not sure how I came across your blog since I don’t normally read blogs but I was entertained with your conversational style and enjoyed reading of your adventures in Portugal. I too have embarked on a similar path by moving to the Algarve 5 months ago and since I have been here sooo much longer, I say to you “Welome Home”.


    1. This may be the nicest comment on my writing I have ever received. I appreciate the feedback and the welcome. I’m certain I made the “right” choice to move here. The air alone in the early morning hours makes me happy and affirms my decision.
