About Me

San Ignacio/Santa Elena, Cayo District, Belize
I chose to move to Belize, September, 2007. I've been in sales and marketing for years, a real estate investor by habit and a Quaker by upbringing. I have a great interest in the ancient Maya civilization so what better place to be than Belize?! It's now January, 2009. I'm fortunate to be a member of the Rotary Club of San Ignacio. It is an active club with members who hail from 11 different countries. The club focuses on education and health issues in the Cayo District. I had forgotten how much I enjoy the experience of new places, people and spaces. The internet and VoIP makes communication fast and easy so I stay up to speed wiht family and friends, as best I can. I love Belize – it has its ups and downs – but it still one of the most beautiful places in the world. People are kind and caring and we all live very close to Mother Earth. Come see for yourself.

Moonset and Sunset over the Belize River Valley

I got up early on a cool March morning, as I tend to do, and opened my front door to this. It was the moon in full bloom, setting over the river valley in which I live. Ix Chel is the ancient Maya goddess of the moon and I felt very close to her that dawn.

I turned around and took a picture of the sunrise on the southeast side of my house.

Here's a sunset over the same lush valley in April. I am very close to the earth in my house on the hill. I feel very connected to the space in which I live. I am thankful everyday for the opportunities I have in my life.
