I lived in Israel/Palestine during the years 1999 to 2013, experiencing the Land and its people and learning all I could about that unique place! As a volunteer, guide and researcher-writer, I loved sharing with visitors and others its diverse wonders: the rich history, archaeology, natural beauty, and Biblical connections– all embedded within the crosscurrents of culture and the gritty realities of conflicting human aspirations in a shared land.
In October 2013 I returned to the USA, more or less permanently. I am still willing to consider guiding engagements–but you will have to cover my airfare from North Carolina and lodging, meals and ground transport in the Holy Land!
I continue to post here occasionally, under the title “View from Jerusalem”, for a very simple reason: Part of me will always be there!
