|Location||Mt. Shasta, California, United States|
|Introduction||~I've just retired from 30 years in CA public education (25+ in both international and domestic programs), where I learned a whole lot from diverse experiences & loved my students dearly. I've been a community college counselor, and an instructor, but have taught from university to pre-K. I owe much to my intercultural training, and a generous and eclectic number of mentors/mentees. I enjoy facilitating classes, leading workshops, and being alive to help with creating a sane world. Best of all, I love to network with other interesting folks on a broad number of useful topics. I'm blessed to live in the rural mountainous woods a bit off I-5 w/family and an extended o'hana. I have travelled in SE Asia, Australia, Japan, Europe, Canada, Mexico, & Guatemala, so far.|
|Interests||~sharing multicultural training resources, simplicity, connections|
|Favorite Movies||...those that provoke empathy and thoughtful intercultural discussions, i.e., Enlightenment Guaranteed, Whalerider, Say I Do, Forrest Gump, Friends, Danny Deckchair, Where the Green Ants Dream, Kurosawa's work, Monty Python's, Harold and Maude, Starman, The Secret Garden, Tootsie, Robin Williams'work|
|Favorite Music||Wouldn't this date me instantly!? Though actually, I really enjoy Joan Baez, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Dan Fogelberg, old Aretha Franklin, Wilson Picket, jazz fusion, blues, ethnic/world music, and serene classics. What are your favorites?|

Sponges and tongues are frequently misspelled. Is it because both are thirsty?
Good question for an intercultural communication workshop or a diversity circle...
