Two years ago, during the summer of 2012, I wrote a guest post for Francine’s blog at Miss Minimalist. At that time we were in the beginning of our 91-day-cruise on Moonraker, anchored out in Thunder Bay. We had no clue that it would be our last summer cruising on the Great Lakes and that Beanie–who was about to begin her second year in the inclusive Head Start class–would not start kindergarten in Michigan. Or that two years later we would no longer live on land.
Looking at all these changes, I decided it was high time to send Francine an update.
So if you’ve just found your way here from Miss Minimalist–welcome aboard! I’ve been writing this blog for three and a half years. If you’re interested in my posts from the earlier days, you will want to check out my Start Here page, which I update every March.
Otherwise, here are some recent posts on the various topics I like to discuss here:

35 Lessons in 35 Years–Lessons I’ve learned, with links to posts telling the story behind each. An ongoing project and a great sampling of my philosophical posts.

I hope you enjoy exploring my blog. Please feel free to comment–the discussion is what makes this such a great community, and I always do write a reply! I am also on Facebook and Twitter. I use social media sparingly, so there is no need to follow on more than one site. But connecting on either of those–or following via e-mail–will guarantee that you don’t miss a post!
Please also link to your blog in the comments. I am very interested in reading about your adventures!
