I’m a traveler, a maverick of sorts, and a long-time environmentalist and conservationist. If I could, I’d be outdoors – in nature, that is – all the time. Or at least while the weather is cooperative.
That said, I am a social sort so I’d want to bring my existing and soon-to-be friends with me.
I’ve had experiences – indoors and out, in the U.S. and around the world – that generate envy among those that know me.
When I put these facts together I discover the reasons that I blog: I want to share places I’ve been and experience I’ve had. And in return, I encourage my readers to reflect and react, hopefully by commenting on this website or directly to me.
Now to be clear, when I say “places” I mean actual geographic entities, as well as the more figurative thoughts, feelings and experiences. So, not all my posts will be about traveling to some exotic rainforest or mountain. They’ll include my life as a woman recently married to another woman, and they’ll touch on family history, legend and lore. As time goes on, topic options are sure to expand. That’s what traveling is all about, after all: moving from the known to the unknown and embracing all the lessons offered along the way.
