Cuba is a fascinating contradiction.
It's a country where most have a college education and no one can buy a house; it's crumbling decrepitude and as beautiful as Prague or Paris; a place where everyone reads and there are few books; a dictatorship where creativity and opinion abounds; a place of excellent health care and no medicine; a city where countless poor live in magnificent palaces; a country where surfaces are often ugly but, upon opening the door, splendors await.
I love "place," and it saddens me that we're quickly turning America into "no-place" with our McMansions, mini-malls, and megaplexes. My books explore the beauty, texture and intricacy of "place," whether I'm traveling to a foreign country or simply enjoying my own beautiful neighborhood in Western Loudoun, Virginia. I believe that humans are being crushed by Sprawl and its accompanying blanket of sameness; we require real places to feed our souls and make us more of who we are and were meant to be. Much more to come . . .
