Hello! This blog began with tales of trips to Malawi and India (2011)… 2012-13 was from Ethiopia (with guest appearances from Germany & Croatia). 2014 on marks the next stage of life: Boston, Massachusetts, USA… with further adventures from that home-base. And now, India and Tanzania!

The cover picture is from a mosque in Istanbul.

The name of the blog comes from a Baha’i prayer for service that I love:

“Make me ready, in all circumstances, O my Lord, to serve Thee and to set myself towards the adored sanctuary of Thy Revelation and of Thy Beauty. If it be Thy pleasure, make me to grow as a tender herb in the meadows of Thy grace, that the gentle winds of Thy will may stir me up and bend me into conformity with Thy pleasure, in such wise that my movement and my stillness may be wholly directed by Thee.”
Enjoy! 🙂

    Dearest Cristina,
    Thank you for establishing this blog for communications during your travels.
    Your spirit of service and dedication to the health of the peoples of the world are SO inspiring. Surely your research and practices for your degree and continuing on in your professional life will move and change things in the world for the better! I just came from an awesome session at Greenacre Baha’i School presented by Glenford Mitchell. At the same time, it was great to have time to be with Liza and to offer prayers (for you and your beloved family) at Abdu’l-Baha’s room. Will be spending the next 10 days with Violette in Arlington, then return to W Palm Beach on July 30th. Will check your blog often to “keep up with you.” Know that my love and prayers go with you!

    Dear Christina,

    My name is Kanawat Chantaralawan, a research fellow at Vaccine and Immunotherapy, MGH. I have been followed your blog for a while. It has inspired me more and more since my goal is in public health and I’m aiming for EIS this year. If you have time, it would be my honor to talk with you and ask for your guidance on this career path.

    Best regards,

    PS. keep on what you are doing, it weighs much more than an inspiration for people who followed in your same path.
