I’ve always enjoyed writing. I’ve written mostly for my own enjoyment, typically about a specific person, incident or occasion. I started this blog in 2013 as part of an online course, hoping to find a way to connect with others with similar interests or questions. I’ve used tags and categories to make finding a particular selection easier.
Please feel free to share any items that speak to you or to friends with similar life circumstances. Please comment if a particular entry moves you.
One blog category, the “China W(a/o)nderings” heading, concerns China, and
is based partly on my travels and teaching there. Earlier in 2018, I published
a longer work, Where the Great Wall Ends: A China Memoir, incorporating
some of the information first blogged about here. Please check out the China entries in this blog, and, if you’re interested, check my author page, jinnybatterson.com for more information about purchasing the book, available in multiple formats through either your local independent bookstore or via Amazon.
