A few days ago I heard someone mention a conversation they'd had with a cab driver. When the person asked the driver to please shut off the engine while waiting for her, the driver told her not to worry, that the world was big enough for a little pollution. This made me think of the callous disregard of those who actually could do something to safeguard our fragile planet.
A little about myself:
Hello there and thank you for visiting my website! I have lived in Spain, Mexico, France and the United States, but now make my home in Germany. I have a Ph.D. in Literary Studies and a Master's in TESOL, and have published several books for children, among them El Loro Tico Tango and El Fandango de Lola, a 2012 Ezra Jack Keats Honor Book. As a writer and an artist I'm in constant conversation with my own anxious mind even as I celebrate the joyful possibilities of our crazy, incomprehensible world.
