After three and a half years of faithful blogging, I humbly request a long-term hiatus. I am up to my earlobes in alligators—figuratively, not literally (although you never know with me)—working on several fun but time-consuming writing projects. Yes, I have some new manuscripts in the hopper.
So please, I invite you to peek around and read some of my previous blogs. The words will take you on wildlife adventures and journeys of the mind. There are dozens of posts, mostly essays about my animal experiences and bits of creative wandering, all pretty timeless in nature.
Peruse a category—maybe A Traveler’s Journal or Poetry & Other Writings. Or use the search bar to find posts about specific animals, like for example dolphins. Of course I recommend searching Golfo Dulce since I did a couple years of marine research there and have gobs of great photos and stories.
May I suggest a sampling to get you started?
