My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

              It’s such a perceptive question, Judy! I had a Masters in English, but I was a reporter and a TV show writer and producer. I started teaching on the second day upon arriving in the US. I wasn’t fluent in oral communication at all because I was taught British English, and, besides, we were deliberately taught not to speak, but only read and write, to prevent communication with foreigners. There were only two universities in Moscow who taught oral communication, and those were spy schools who prepared diplomats. I took a pronunciation class.

              Well, you are so skilled in its usage that I forget you were not born to the language! When you came, did anyone from your family come with you, or any friends? I know you were allowed to leave the Soviet Union due to an agreement with the U.S. Did Jimmy Carter broker that agreement and what did the U.S. trade in return? If you’ve told the story of coming to the U.S. would you please give me a link? Curious about what you were allowed to bring with you and how they decided where you would go. How you settled in. If you have already told me this, please forgive. I find myself forgetting more and more lately. I can watch the same movie twice in one year and still be surprised in the details and ending.

              I’ll answer your questions in order of appearance, Judy..
              I came with my son who was 6 1/2 years old at the time. My parents, grandparents, and brother followed a month later.
              Senator Barry Goldwater brokered the deal by initiating the so-called Senators’ List of refuseniks who were released in exchange for American wheat.
              I was not allowed to bring anything with me, other than a change of clothing for my son and myself. I left in a cotton skirt and shirt and had to wear my son’s sweatshirt in Vienna when it was cold. Yes, I was the same size as a 6-year-old.
              In Vienna, my family caught up with me, and we proceeded to Rome together. I was claimed by Philadelphia, apparently because a story about me had been published in Philadelphia Jewish Exponent. Again, my family joined me there a month later.
              I have never told the story and I don’t think I will, but I’ll answer questions.
