Bring us up to date on your life after the peace corps:
I studied for Masters, then PhD in Cognitive Science and Computer Science. I taught ESL at the AUA Language Center in Bangkok (1980). I was a software systems engineer and architect at IBM from '84 to '96, and have been engaged in modeling and simulation R&D for the federal government (in private industry) since 1996.
Any thoughts you have now looking back on peace corps days?:
Peace Corps was the greatest and most difficult experience of my life, one that propelled me forward in so many ways. It was transformational and inspirational.
Anyone you are looking for or would like to hear from?:
Tom Petocz, Bill Hollis, Linda Do,
Any message for returned volunteers?:
It may be tough, but don't expect the "folks back home" to get what you're experiencing. Having been PCV and RPCV, you live to tell the tales, and that's enough. Communicate what you can, but know that your experience is so richly, uniquely, intensely yours ... and yours alone.
