I like to think that my wanderlust is firmly rooted in the first two definitions of the word vagabond, but it would be hard to argue that I don’t have at least a few elements of the third, punctuating my life. I am endlessly restless and relentlessly curious; always seeking new ways of learning about and from the world around me. Whether rambling around far away places, or investigating new corners of my home in the Pacific Northwest, I am always happiest while wandering.
This blog is a collect of stories, essays, photographs, and poems about my own journey of embodied inquiry as I try to understand what it means to be a human in this wild, wondrous world. I hope that this blog inspires readers to start their own version of vagabonding and in the process uncovering the lost art of learning about the world by moving through it in slow, embodied, and meaningful ways.
