They told me it couldn’t be done. They said, at age 54, with no portfolio or clips of previously published work, I couldn’t possibly break into travel writing. Fortunately, I am not the kind of person to whom you can say “can’t,” because I will do it just to prove you wrong. It’s been five long, glorious years getting here but today I proved them all wrong. Today, I realized just how much of a favor all those naysayers did for me. Because today I was featured on ABC News.
When I was in Washington, DC last week covering the Dalai Lama during his Kalachakra for World Peace, I met a producer from ABC. He loved my personal story and had me into the studio for an on-camera interview. He thought it would probably only go on their website, but apparently it was on the morning news today, as well as being plastered all over the ABC and Washington News Network websites.

Thank you, Tom Giusto and ABC. For helping to make my dream come true.
