WHERE ARE YOU (GEOGRAPHICALLY)?
At present I spend most of my time at my refuge on Kent Island, a tiny speck in the Chesapeake Bay across a four-mile bridge from Annapolis, Maryland, about an hour from Washington, D.C.
My other home is with my husband in the Argentine pampa, on the outskirts of the city of San Nicolas de los Arroyos, Provincia Buenos Aires, on the banks of the Rio Parana, from which one can float down to Buenos Aires and the Atlantic Ocean, provided the piranhas don’t get too hungry.
WHAT DO YOU DO?
What I do and who I am are closely intertwined, so please see above. As a firm believer in the power of character strengths to change our world, I devote myself to developing them 24:7, at work, home, play, and service. From coaching to leading adult religious education programs, for me it is all about becoming more authentic, more awake, and more connected to each other and our precious planet.
