              • The audio version of my history  In 1988, after three years of teaching English as a Second Language in Latin America, I was offered a position in Indonesia. Also found out I was losing my vision to Retinitis Pigmentosa, a condition she can’t even pronounce and for which there is no cure. I used Baseball as a metaphor for this interesting challenge.
