Welcome to my Circumnavigator’s Blog

Kind World,
I would like to cordially welcome you all to my blog, tracking my Circumnavigator’s trip during the coming summer 2019. As you can read in the “About” section in the corner of the lovely cover photo of the Australian Baha’i Choral Festival, I have been afforded a once-in-a-lifetime experience… to travel around the world in 90 days. During this trek, I will visit six countries and pass every meridian, collecting insights on Baha’i choral music at various Continental Baha’i Houses of Worship. I will be using this site to keep you updated on my observations, the collected data, and–of course–every travel mishap and joy along the way. If you scroll down you will find a research project I worked on during summer 2018, comparing Early Christian narratives of the Virgin Mary with obstetric texts from Mediterranean Antiquity. And while I’m sure you would all be enchanted to read my analyses on the immaculate conception, we are all on to broader things and bigger places; I am thrilled that you will be joining me on my journey around the world.
