Getting Started


Despite the fact that I’ve jotted notes in journal books for more than five decades, drafted a novel, published a book (This Congruent Life: A Spiritual Ecology Practice) and a handful of poems, and (I’m embarrassed to admit) often conjure haikus in my sleep, this is my first blog. Why now? Because I need the support of this imaginary, invisible community to get me through the enormous transition from here to that elusive third half of life called “retirement.” The thing is: I don’t picture myself “retiring,” certainly not in any traditional sense. I intend to be far more active and spend far more time outdoors than my current working life allows. But those who know me well would describe me as “change averse.” I need your help to take this leap.
