I have a lot of questions. Many of these are of the existential what-does-it-all-mean variety that I suspect I'll never have answers to. But, for the purposes of this blog, I generally have two big questions that I'm trying to learn more about: 1) What are the ways that nature can enhance our health and happiness? I think we … Continue reading Two Big Questions on My Mind
Have you found your passion yet? I haven’t, and it’s super-annoying. Across many of the podcasts, websites, and books that I enjoy, there is a seemingly constant focus on finding that one thing that captivates your attention, sucks you in, and takes you along for the ride.

In truth, I don't think I want to do much different this summer. I want to focus on playing outside, … Continue reading A Handful of Goals for Summer

I was tired of being cooped up over the winter, especially since I'b been sick for several weeks. I'm not that big on setting goals because it seems like I don't always have a lot … Continue reading A Handful of Goals for Spring: Update

One big reason for that, … Continue reading Two Reasons Why I’m Not Blogging Much These Days
