I am a grandmother paddling alone over 2,500 miles from Maine to Guatemala. Along the way I will be:
- telling the story of the children who live in the Guatemala City garbage dump community
- honoring their entrepreneurial mothers
- talking about the success of the Safe Passage model school and
- raising funds for additional grades for the school.

Brace free!
Just had my two week check-up.  Ditch the neck brace!  Just four more weeks of healing until I can start my weeks of physical therapy.

One Week Post Surgery: Smiling in Savannah

Steak and blue cheese pastry with tea.  Must be in England?
The first week of recovery had its ups and downs.  Instant relief from the nerve related pain in shoulder and arm is a huge up!  Severe restrictions on movement, drugged by painkillers, and discouragement over not kayaking are downs.  But plans are percolating for the rest of the expedition.
