Digitalcassidy - I’m so sorry for my lack of response. I haven’t used Medium much, though I think it’s a great platform for writers. Thank you so much for the kind words (and for reading!). I’ve been on an around-the-world writing and volunteering project for the last year. (If you’re interested, it’s at www.DropMeAnywhere.com.) (DropMeAnywheredotcom) I sold everything and used all my savings to do it. The story you commented on is from a series of four articles I wrote for MyOwnAdventure.wordpress.com. Thanks again and sorry for not responding sooner.
