It’s the Fabergé Organics Shampoo principle:  I tell two friends, then they’ll tell two friends and so on, and so on….Being a child of the ’70’s I grew up watching commercials like this: 

I mean, this is marketing genius!  A modestly dressed woman with shiny long brown hair and friendly smile speaking to me as though she were my friend.  She tells me about this great shampoo, then asks me to tell just two other friends.  It’s shampoo, for chrissakes. They just want you to make sure you buy the right one – the original – and that you tell people about it so they’ll buy more of it.  Perfect.

So now, ignore my hair and yours.  Go tell two friends about this blog, and they’ll tell two friends, and so on, and so on, and so on….

Or, you could just go buy the shampoo.  I hear it’s still available somewhere.

I am a writer disguised as a teacher by day, masquerading as a traveler.  This is a historically (hopefully) accurate account of my life by examining love (or lack of it) and friendship (its many facets) and how they have brought me where I am today. Isabelle Allende once said “Write what should not be forgotten”. That’s what I intend to do. UPDATE:  I’ve also decided to include some thoughts about random things.  Surely a contribution to inventing Maria McCabe.
