El Meson La Buitrera, Palmira Valle Del Cauca, Colombia

Bio: I am an American who moved to Colombia to find peace after the devastating loss of my daughter. I bought and renovated a Villa, am learning Spanish, and writing as catharsis. This blog will be like a book with chapters. Each blog will be about my life in Colombia and my adventures. I hope you will enjoy the many new discoveries I am making every day about myself and another culture.

  1. I applaud your courage and strength to change your life and cope with all the challenges. You deserve the peace and serenity that has found you. My condolences for the loss of your daughter. She is reflected in you and your spirit.


    1. Thank you, I think my loss made me more courageous. I have never been one to be an entrepreneur. I worked for Delta all my life from when I was not even 20 years old. I feel the loss somehow showed me to explore life and to live for her. I really am complete now, always sad, but I am ok now. I will fulfill her life with mine.
