I have read a number of your blog posts and I am wondering something.

Would you consider putting a map on your site?

I think I have an idea where in the world you are (it sounds MARVELOUS!) I'm just kind of looking for something in a graphic format to see where you are located.

This is a very nice place to learn about your area. I didn't know about it before this and I'm looking forward to learning more from you!
