Adventures in Wonderland

From Alison: apart from the obvious – the excitement, joy, and stimulation that comes from discovering new cultures, environments, and ways of doing life, and meeting new people, hiking new trails and seeing new sights, Don had this to say:

The fundamental questions we keep asking ourselves have been “Why are we travelling all the time?” and “Why have we become nomads at this time in our lives?” The answer that seems to make the most sense is because the constant travelling provides the most powerful opportunities to learn the lessons we need to learn about staying present, about not being attached to what happens in any given moment, about the fact that home is an internal experience not an external location, and that the essential self, who we really are in our essence, never changes and never goes anywhere.

About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives. (see links below on Ventura County Star Article & Shelter) To find out more please go the The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap on facebook or Amazon or e-mail us at the gavatar addresses. Thank you.

  5. Enjoyed this. I love to travel. I love to see new people, new places, new and interesting ways of embracing cultures and ideas of living. I’d not have come to understand and respect some of the cultures I have if not for having been emersed in them.
    We seek answers and sometimes don’t always consciously know that.
    Our unconscious moves us to learn and touch another’s heart.

  6. A lucky couple. Free as the birds.
