From my July 2020 Newsletter:

​At the beginning of June, as we started to step back into the world, I had been thinking of ways in which the pandemic may have affected so many of the people my husband, Mike, and I have met on our travels. Few countries have escaped unscathed. And, of course, our experience with COVID 19 is far from over.  As a way of paying respect to the current predicament we are in and the wonderful, unique and culturally-diverse people we have encountered throughout our travels, I have been sharing photos on my Facebook and Instagram pages.  It's my way of articulating the truly global nature of this pandemic.  I hope you...

From my June 2020 newsletter ( ...

When I started posting photos to Facebook and Instagram, most of us were quarantined. Some of us were anxious. And, I wanted to give folks a glimpse of the world outside our doors. A daily moment of Zen. But, now we're launching back out there. Some of us are eager to leave; some may hang out at home longer. But, these balloons symbolize our flight into a new unknown. Starting this week, my daily photos have taken on a slightly different theme. This one's "Ready to Launch" from Bagan, Myanmar (Burma).

Stop over to my Facebook page or Instagram account to check out more photography by my husband, Mike Knowlton, and me and share some feedback in the comments.  Thanks!

​The Alexa Willliams suspense series was featured on the Sunbury Press blog earlier this year, but I didn't catch it as I was away. It's a nice summary of the series. If you're an Alexa fan, please share with your friends.

Excerpt taken from my newsletter: 

A few days ago, I re-read T.S. Eliot's poem, The Wasteland, which opens with the line:

"April is the cruellest month." 

Eliot wrote his classic of modernist poetry in the aftermath of World War I, when Europe and America were reeling from death and destruction. I fear that Eliot's words may again be all too apt for the April we're facing today -- although the battle is against an enemy that's unseen until after it attacks. I take hope from the fact that, when Eliot wrote The Wasteland, the world had survived. Battered and weary, but carrying on. And, the world will again survive Covid-19, despite devastating loss of life and an economic toll that will be felt far into the future.

During the rainy days ahead, both in Apr...

My husband and I spent most of August in Southern Africa. We love the outdoors, seeing animals in the wild, and the adventure of safaris so, for us, Africa is the perfect destination.  We’ve made several trips to East Africa and Southern Africa, but keep returning to the isolated wilds of Botswana.

This trip, we visited five different camps in three different regions: the watery Okavango Delta, the river-based Linyanti with its thousands of elephants, and the scenic Kalahari Plains. 

We also stayed at Mana Pools National Park in Zimbabwe.  Located on the Zambezi River, our camp nestled under huge ebony trees. One of its delights was that animals used the camp as a path to the river. That meant every time we stepped out our door, we had to be alert for the elephants, elands, and even a leopa...
