UPDATED March 11, 2012
I’ve started to think about changing my blog name because it appears we’re going to be staying in one place for a while. I tend to write mostly about three things these days: photography, hang gliding, and Tisen (a rescue dog who claimed us). The overarching theme, if I had to pick one, is learning. I play at being both student and teacher in life and I tend to pay close attention to what I’m learning and how I’m learning. I try not to dive too deeply into the tech talk of photography, but to try to share more about my own learning process. Same with hang gliding. Tisen has become a subject of both still photos and videos and I include at least one shot of Tisen in every post for good measure.
What you can expect from my blog currently is a 500 word or less post with photos and/or video every day at 6AM New York time. My photos are sometimes decent and sometimes bad, but when they’re the topic of my post, I take a “learn with me” sort of approach. I think my posts are often hilarious. I’m not sure anyone else does. :-)
Life is always busy. We go day to day doing the things we need to do to just live and forget about the dreams we had and the things we wanted to achieve as time rushes by. Restlessness bubbles to the surface in occasional swells and every once in a while, breaks through, motivating us to action. My husband and I decided to take action to combat boredom with the same-old by seeing the things we wanted to see and I decided to write about it. In the end, this blog is about finding meaning in life in our small way and sharing the experience of living. We are choosing a nomadic lifestyle, moving from one place to another to experience different parts of North America. At the same time, I work for a large corporation and continue to function in a mainstream sort of way–I have a job, health insurance, etc. If you’re curious about what it’s like to not be settled for long, well, so am I. This is our journey.
