I’ve always enjoyed writing. I write 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 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. In 2018, I published
a longer work, Where the Great Wall Ends: A China Memoir, incorporating
some of the information first blogged about here. If you’re interested in China, please check out the China entries in this blog. If you’d like a deeper China experience, 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.
