Outdoor Edit // On the Road (Again)


Midwest tour has begun! Drove down to Cleveland yesterday to do a talk, now I’m in Cincinnati for Pan-Ams, then Peter and I are testing out our now-renovated Ford Transit Connect by camping for the week (the weather is looking gorgeous!) between there and …



Outdoor Edit // Chilly, Wet and Rainy


  We’re up in Ontario for a week so I’m taking serious advantage of time outside and time in one place. We’re even farm-sitting for a few days! But the weather is starting to turn, temps are dropping and rain is more and more …

Outdoor Edit // Whiskey and Words


I was going through some old notes yesterday and ran across a letter of recommendation a dear friend and former co-worker of mine once wrote for me. In it, she was answering the question my new boss had asked of how I could be …
