Hi Arlene, loved this!
I run a smaller but growing publication called Journal of Journeys here on Medium.
This is the first story of yours I have read but it’s right in line with the message of the publication. Would love to add you as a writer if you’re interested.
If so let me know and I’ll add you right now. If not, just do us both a favor and keep writing.
Thanks and have a great weekend!
