Ten Years In Paradise

Ten years ago today I arrived in Honduras as a Peace Corps Volunteer Aspirante. After a 3-month training period, I and my 50-member class that was trained at three different sites, became full-fledged PCVs, agents of the US State Department and assigned all over the country. After my two-year service requirement was complete I decided to remain in Honduras as a permanent resident. At the top left of the web page is a link to three chapters of a biographical memoir I am writing. The book’s title is Met The Nun: Lost My Heart. It is appropriately about the love that I found working as an English teacher, History teacher, mentor and counselor with a group of at-risk children of all ages. I have never regretted my choice; the experience has changed my life. I now live in peace, tranquility, and harmony with the children and my maker.
