About

I am a RPCV (returned Peace Corps Volunteer) and am currently striving to be a writer of sorts. I do other ‘odd jobs’ but for the present moment, am wandering down the path of life. Just noticing the nuances of the Journey.  I have met people along the way who have either guided me, needed some insight, or have passed books and knowledge onto me, and because of the kindness of strangers I have read: The Mastery of Knowledge by don Miguel Ruiz, The Journeys of Socrates by Dan Milman, The Stuff of Thought by Steven Pinker, The Swan’s Way and The Germantes Way by Marcel Proust, The Halographic Universe, and the religious books, The Koran, The Bible, The Tao te Ching, The I Ching, The Upanishads, and The Bhagavad-Gita. I have come to read in Bulgarian, Russian, French, English, and am currently teaching myself Arabic – life- like education – is a progressing process. I have traveled half way around the world a couple of times, and plan on doing it again, and through all of my travels I have taught much, but learned more, I have given all I own away, yet have had my stores replenished, and have made many friends along the way. Will you come join me along the journey of life and find pure happiness in naught but the moment?

    So was your PC assignment in Bulgaria? 🙂 Is that how you learned to read in Bulgarian? I find your “About” page quite interesting and am intrigued to know more. Thank you for stopping by and following ~WithLoveFromBG~. I hope you stay in touch with our community on here as well: http://www.facebook.com/withlovefrombg. 🙂

      Yeah, I was assigned to live and work in Southwest Bulgaria, in Dobarsko, near Bansko. I lived with a family there, who in time would come to socially adopt me in a church ceremony. We still talk on nearly a weekly basis through skype (I gave them my computer before I left and taught them how to use it) and over the telephone.
