About Me This humble blog began life at transitophile.blogspot.com, and now has a domain of its own. Lucky you! Think of how exhausting it was to have to type ‘blogspot’ after ‘transitophile.’ I am a Bay Area native, retired LAUSD teacher, novelist, expat, shutterbug and former director of the late, great TransitPeople. (My life in linked URLs!) This is my public soapbox.
