Looking forward to sharing with you!

“What rhymes with time? Party with me (I’m 80 today) for terse verse & talk about the nature, nurture & DNA of the interculturalist.”
Let’s do some musing, serious & amusing, about intercultural work, what it’s choosing, fusing & losing, oft rife with strife. I’ll dare to share with care lessons learned & fingers burned, tempest tossed & turned. I’ll chew on where I blew it & rue it, let you hear, fear & maybe cheer a pale male tale of a boy’s joys, ploys & training toys. OK, so I’m a logophiliac & there’s friction in my diction, but I promise plain talk about where we’ve been, what we’ve seen & where we’re going as interculturalists, our bumbling, rumbling trip, rough & tumbling, tough & humbling. What action can give us more than a fraction of traction in a world of faction & reaction? Welcome, anybody who cares & dares to bite the intercultural apple & grapple with its present as well as sneak a peek at its future
