Where it all began
Well, it really began in my straw bale apartment in the Gatineau hills, when I received the phone call offering me the job of Traveling Professor for the International Honors Program. I felt so intensely excited about the offer that I walked out of the house without my cell phone, and then without my map, as I tried to come back down to the earth I was standing on so that I could find my way to my office picnic at Britannia Beach. I envisioned myself leaving that beautiful earth I had lived on for the past year for new adventures with new people in new places all over the world. First Boston, then Geneva, then Bangalore, Changsha, Cape Town and beyond. Traveling miles.
