I am GlobalMum…an American scholar who lived in the Southern Hemisphere for most of 2010-2020. I returned to the Northern Hemisphere for 8 months in 2016/2017 as life had shifted dramatically Down Under. Life shifted again after bushfires ravaged such a beautiful place and Covid 19 spread. As Australia continued to insulate itself, I was unable to find work that would sponsor us or would consider an immigrant for the role.
This blog is part of my processing the glorious mess in (re)building a life with my son, my spouse and my tribe, a group of amazing individuals across the globe.
It’s a reorientation of perspective for me. “Two inches to the left”, so to speak. So welcome to life building in all its messy glory!
