Life is full of plans and schedules. We write it out and try to execute it all. How full that page of activities are is mostly up to the author.

Make the margins wider.

Double space the schedule.

Leave gaps.

Leave room for the soon-to-be important things to work their way...

When my self-confidence is so fragile, how can I find contentment in my days?

THE BATTLE

Love wins.

"Say bag!"

"Say boat!"

"Isn't it always cold there?"

"Do you use dogsleds to get around?"

"Have you seen the movie Fargo?" 

It's enj...

The May Day sky over Maine is dark and grey. The clouds are drizzling over us like flour through a sieve, which sent me to seek out new growth on the island farm. Vibrant as ever is the rhubarb plant pushing it's way out of the earth.
 


The colors. The patterns. The bea...

If it will be a year that we travel the US without jobs, we are reaching the 3/4 point. It has been a very rewarding decision to make the leap into vehicle living. Although we are giving up daily comforts and routines, we get so much joy from the flexibility of our day...
