So here we are, in our small RV, sitting in the middle of the Avra Valley of the Sonoran Desert, a 20-minute drive west of Tucson. The Sonoran Desert is actually a large thing, stretching from Phoenix, AZ, into northern Mexico and across the breadth of Arizona. But it is not the sand-dunes-desert that may first come to mind when you hear “desert.” That image may fit the Mojave Desert to the west, better.
Ok, so I’m not going to give you a travelogue blog, as you can tell by the absence of posts since October, almost exactly 3 months ago. Equally obviously, I am still finding how I will use this blog. Look for some posts on, or inspired by, anthropology. For example, this one. But today, I would like to fill in the gaps in the journey we started on October 28th (of 2015).

We are voyagers, now, who have left shore with a destination in mind that is not “home,” but we have not yet accepted that our “ship” is, in fact, home. It is a feeling of being untethered.

In these past 7 weeks, I have been busy learning about entrepreneurship and improving my WordPress skills. Continue reading “Pond Webdesigns”
This is a new blog for a new chapter in my life. After 12 years, 11 months, and 1 week (but who’s counting?!) I left employment with Thomson Reuters Legal in Rochester, NY. They needed to reduce personnel costs and the years of service gave me a acceptable severance package and 6 months to decide what is next. So on December 19, 2014, I said goodbye to some good friends and fine legal publishing team members, but also a 30-minute commute and time away from family and activities I would prefer to be spending time on.
So, what is next? Continue reading “Chapter: Next”
