British PassportOn a personal note, last Sunday marked the sixteenth anniversary of my immigration from Scotland to the United States. On January 11th, 1999 at 11:00am in London, I boarded a plane at Gatwick airport en route to San Diego… with two suitcases and a mere £50 to my name and no idea how to get a visa. I feel profoundly grateful to the friends who supported me, and for trusting myself to follow my heart. I’ll write up my story more fully one day soon, thanks to the encouragement of my Facebook family! 🙂
