Mary Clark, Traveler

Tuesdays at 4:50pm and 5:50pm, during All Things Considered

Writing a travel column for the Paris News has brought together my life experiences and my life outlook. After 29 years of practicing law, I was ready for this change and it's been fun. I didn't want to manufacture the usual travel column with a few hotels, restaurants, and sites thrown in (although I'm told that's what most people want). What I wanted was to personalize cultures with stories. These encounters are not limited to foreign countries. The United States is richly diverse and reflective of the world and is a great source for the column. And, interestingly, I consider Paris, Texas itself a microcosm of the world and some stories will reflect that.

My essays are now being read on my new show and podcast, Mary Clark, Traveler, on 88.9 KETR, public radio for Northeast Texas.
