I live the writer’s life in the Republic of Panama.  On a cliff overlooking Rio Zarati sits my home with its massive back porch.  This is my tranquil piece of paradise.  Two years ago my mom came to visit and loved it too.  Easily adding a small apartment across the courtyard I now share this paradise with my 91 year old mom and our boxer Layla.
