I’m totally ok not having a car: Reflections on a spontaneous road trip

4 Nov 2017 sweden

Lina + I don’t have a car. And most days that’s totally ok. Some days, however, I long for the convenience and freedom that I feel when I live in the US. But, all in all, I’m perfectly happy walking + taking public transportation everywhere. Actually, I really really love it. I mean, it’s good for me + good for the world. So, it’s totally win-win. Buuuuut. After growing up and driving around for about 35 years non-stop, there areRead More

My one word weekend list

4 Jun 2017 lists

It’s been a few days, my friends. But, I have a good excuse… I don’t have a computer! Ok, so nothing horrible happened to mine, but my lovely wife sent me a text on Thursday (I had the day off + was just getting ready to hunker down to start working on blog posts), when this popped up on my screen: ” My love, do you want a new computer today?”  Well… YEAH.

19 Apr 2017 gatherings

And that made me + Lina more happy than I could ever express.   Now, spring break in Sweden ain’t all that great to be honest.Read More

As soon as I drove into my brother’s neighborhood Friday night, I had the feeling that I was gonna be celebrating “Christmas in Maine”… like a small town, coastal Maine Christmas movie. It just felt magical and cozy and wintery. There was ice/snow on the ground, it was bitterly cold. But, it was toasty warm in the house. And there was pizza waiting for us! And beer! Oh, glorious Asheville craft beer! My parents had stocked up on multiple casesRead More

30 Nov 2016 the sacred everyday

Wine. Cheese. Family. A little work. A lot of meditation. Some snow. And getting cozy in the dark. It’s the end of November, a time of the year that I love for so many reasons. Reasons like… the beginning of the holiday season. I love the focus on gathering simply to gather, to be cozy, and to just enjoy each other.  And, of course, inward nature of this spiritual time of year is a favorite part of mine… religious orRead More
