Yvonne deSousa has worked as a street sweeper, a shell seller, a babysitter, a candy peddler, and a guest house manager, all before the age of sixteen. Later on she worked as a waitress, sales clerk, library assistant, victim’s advocate, and at the front desk of a doctor’s
office.

Her work has appeared on CapeWomenOnline.com, and in Chicken Soup for the Soul: Finding My Faith

Thar She Goes…….The Return Trip

Revisiting an aquatic, super fun despite multiple sclerosis, kind of day

I just came across this blog I wrote in 2014 and I’m surprised that I forgot about it.  I like it a lot and can’t believe I haven’t reposted it since then.  And so, as the whale watch boats begin to line up at our local pier, and my calendar fills with things that don’t allow me leisure time to write away, here is a bla
