    Thank you so very much for writing West of Kabul, East of New York… Such a gift of insight, understanding, and heart. Can’t wait to read Games without Rules and your other work.

    I began Destiny Disrupted over a cup of coffee at 6 a.m. It is now 7:30 p.m. and I remain in pajamas and am dazed by this plunge into history that simply felt like an intense conversation with you. So many “ah ha’s” and more importantly for me…..a zillion or more subjects to learn more about. Thank you so much.

    I want to subscribe to your blog. How can I do that?

    I’ve read Destiny Disrupted and am reading West of Kabul, East of New York. About 1980 I had a real estate buyer transferring with a large company to Philadelphia area from Afghanistan. The family was trying to secretly get his mother out of Afghanistan to the US. I was with him the day he heard that she had arrived safely in Paris after a 2 month journey. Since then and 9/11, I’ve been trying to learn and understand what is happening in that part of the world. Thanks to you for making it possible.
