My 50s overflowed with blessings. Beloved friends. Professional achievements. Global adventures. Who ever thought this scaredy-cat from Arlington, Virginia, would swim with whale sharks off Cancun? Or photograph wild polar bears in Churchill, Canada? Or chase penguins up glacier trails in Antarctica? My favorite travel experience of this decade: receiving a sacred blessing from a wise Mayan shaman in a Mexican village, then meeting him again the next year on the same street in the same village and receiving a second blessing.
Is that luck or divine intervention?
