Growing up in the South… wait. Let me rephrase that. Mostly growing up in the South, you learn a lot about living off of the land, farming, appreciating your surroundings. Not that I didn’t before. I mean, I grew up navigating the red woods of northern California chasing off bears, mountain lions and lost hippies. But down here, everything’s much slower, much more indulgent.
Spring is over and Summer is officially here, and with that I welcome a new chapter in my ever-changing life. As I write these words on my deck, I’m surrounded by beauty and brought back to basics; just me, a pen…well computer, now, as times have changed… a sunset and a revived, intense passion for life.
