Newsletters:

My family name "Gerzon" comes from the Hebrew name "Gershom" meaning "Stranger in a Strange Land". I've been sending out my Stranger in a Strange Land Newsletter since the spring of 2002. I travel by myself, meeting old and new friends, experiencing practical, profound, and difficult lessons, and having some awesome adventures along the way! Read the most recent one or pick a place or topic that interests you!
