About the Editor:
Lara Kerr is a professional editor and writer residing on California's Central Coast.
Enjoy an excerpt from one of her writings:
"How differently people can see things! Sometimes that makes for thought-provoking debate, affording glimpses into nuances that expose a spectrum of hues encased in the thoughts of another. That enriches us as we welcome diversity. After I learn about another way of “being”, I turn it over and over in my head as if it were an unusual seashell. Thoroughly enjoying the exposure to something new, I feel improved somehow, enriched, stretched. It’s a delightful form of sightseeing, art appreciation, “study abroad”. I know others who love to delve like that, respecting that which differs from our own little cosmos."
