  • Thank you for your kind words, Edward. I just post news of all the good work other RPCVs are doing. I post public records from the Peace Corps when I can get them… I know you live in San Francisco. Are you okay? Please stay safe. There is nothing poetic about those orange skies.

  • Safe, secure. 50 years here now. Air quality unhealthy currently from extensive fires in California and in Oregon, expected to improve Thursday, this being the 29th consecutive spare-the-air day–near twice the previous record. Fire deaths rising.
