Lookin” Up in Down Times by Mountainbird
Lookin’ Up in Down Times narrates adventures the Author, Mountainbird, experienced over a span of thirty years, while traveling and teaching in New York, Florida, Arizona, Massachusetts and North Carolina, the US territory of Guam, the Micronesian island of Kosrae, and the West African country of Ghana. While the chapters are based on true experiences, rather than follow a strict autobiographical theme, each story is written to inspire personal growth, while motivating adult readers as they travel and reflect on their own life journeys. Even though Mountainbird distances herself emotionally by calling herself Maria, readers are invited to enter in as the heroine and others find help when there seems to be none forthcoming, realize the positive or the life lesson in every situation, and, ultimately, see light in the midst of darkness or the most challenging circumstances.
