Impressive About page, Evelyn. The part about Koru vs. kuru gave me a chuckle. If you're ever in Vietnam, please let me know!

Just thought of yet another clarification. I've nothing against leisure and wealth. If I thought it would make me happy, I'd be all over them. But first-hand experience has taught me otherwise. But tossing out business skills is like throwing out the baby with the bathwater.

Lei, thanks! Actually must credit Brad Templeton over at EFF ( for describing the nuances of kuru. I very much have been wanting to visit Vietnam, and should I go you'll be the first to know. I'm not sure how to fit it into my schedule this winter. Right now, the plans call for me to go return to Thailand and then finally go to India as I have been planning for years. Other writers & photographers to go to Sri Lanka & Indonesia.

Ty, thanks. Watch this space & Most of it has to do with helping ordinary people be ordinary artists and tell stories in their own voice. These two quotes are good mantras for the projects:

"You can preach a better sermon with your life than with your lips."
— Oliver Goldsmith

"Speak what you feel, not what you ought to say."
— William Shakespeare, from King Lear

Keith, Thanks so much for the pointer to the story.
