I am the shortest in my family of four; even my two children have passed me in height and my husband has always had the advantage of being able to look over the top of my head. But I measure up in other ways. I am unique. Every time we move, I get to be a new person. And we move a lot. In the last 22 years of my husband’s career, we have moved 12 times. That doesn’t count my childhood career as a military brat.
Today, I find myself living in Quito, Ecuador. Everyday life includes endless car alarms, obscene driving conditions, and gorgeous mountain views. Every new road, every small town, every big city offers a new experience. My goal is to write about them all.
