What brought me to the ESL community is my love of languages and other cultures—I speak five languages and have traveled extensively and lived in many foreign countries. My three passions in life are teaching, writing, and photography. I’m currently finishing my second book, Meet Me in the Underworld: Seeking My Soul in Sacred Sites, with Nancy Marriott as my editor. You can read about my book and visit my galleries on my web site: www.svetlanameritt.com (Svetlana Meritt is my artistic name).
I also have a photolog on sacred sites—an ideal way to travel vicariously. You can receive my bi-monthly posts if you subscribe at: http://www.svetlanameritt.com/book-photolo/
