Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I have worked and traveled and have written several books. One entitled Scream White Man about the Dominican Republic. A book of short stories with Mark Boley a fellow Volunteer, entitled Peace Corps Time. My most recent book entitled There Comes A Time is in honor of the twentieth anniversary of my first Peace Corps service in Tanzania.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
It's the last great American adventure, it's the only true way of living free, feeling good about yourself and what you're doing. The United States is a country lost in its own need to be rich and powerful, and sometimes you need a break from it. If you can't strap a pack on your back and just go, you're really missing something. Peace Corps people never forget how to do that.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Any message for returned volunteers?:
Hemingway once said, if you have a message send it to Western Union. I feel the same.
