Body Contact with the President of Haiti…

By Susan Jacobs   With Haiti awaiting the results of the presidential election held on October 25, I’m flooded with memories of the extensive time I spent there from 2005 – 2008, prior to the 2010 earthquake that nearly destroyed the country. That particular disaster did, however, put Haiti on the map as a country […]

The Silent Warrior – Settling for ‘good enough’.
