I was lucky enough to have grown up with Leslie Rinchen Wongmo --we went all through grammar and high school together, back when she was Leslie Freilich and I was Erin Coombs. We spent many junior high hours writing and recording radio plays instead of sitting through English class. Thanks to the Internet, we recently reconnected.
Leslie followed her heart: traveling, creating Buddhist textile art and living with passionate purpose. She shares her inspiring story on the Sparkle the Heart blog.
