Life is a series of little moments, the best of which start an adventure.

For a scientist, a moment of curiosity can start an adventure of discovery.

For a teacher, a moment with a student can start an adventure of learning.

For a yogi, a moment on the mat can start an adventure of awareness.

For a writer, a moment of inspiration can start an adventure of creativity.

And a moment of creativity can become a story.

Dian Seidel is the author of Kindergarten at 60: A Memoir of Teaching in Thailand, released in June 2023. Before turning to writing, Dian was a senior scientist at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, where she specialized in detecting climate trends and contributed to the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize–winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.


Born and raised in Massachusetts, she lives in the Washington DC area, where she teaches English as a second language and Iyengar yoga. She loves crossword puzzles, book clubs, open ocean swimming, and the heart of a ripe watermelon on an August afternoon.
