Photos of Glacier National Park

by Kim September 2, 2014

We’ve just recently wrapped up two weeks in Montana. It is, hands down, one of our favorite states. Despite the rain, Montana has charmed us with her rugged mountains, sweeping valleys, ancient glaciers, moody skies and, yes, even with her grizzly bears.

Saying yes

I don’t know how it started but in the months since Brian and I came back to the U.S. and began our 7-month trip around the country we’ve developed an unspoken agreement. We accept any invitation that comes our way.

A letter from the experimenters

by Kim July 30, 2014

Kim, your life is an experiment. The experiment is to see what will happen if you live every moment in tune with that voice inside your soul, the voice that you’ve dusted off and pulled out from the remains of your old life, the voice that refused to be voiceless.

Life is fluid

by Kim July 13, 2014

One of the best things I have taken away from my study of Buddhism is the knowledge that life is fluid. Obviously, I knew this on some level, but it has been important for me to realize that I am predisposed to think that once something is a certain way it will be like that forever.

by Kim July 3, 2014

This time, I have tried to face the stress head on, to meet the discomfort, concern and the anxiety at the door, to swing the door wide open before it even knocks. I am trying to do the brave thing, to ask the hard questions. But I am filled with doubt.

It is all real life

by Kim June 24, 2014

We drove and drove. The traffic thinned. The trees grew dense and billowing, so green and alive in the sunshine. Hours passed. We got hungry and pulled off at the first exit we came to.

An American traveler back in America

by Kim June 20, 2014

Here is what I want to know. Why? Why do we just accept having a massive mortgage and the newest smartphone and so many bills to pay that we have to go in to work over the weekend to earn overtime as The Way? Why money? Or, at least, why money above all else?

Little Talbot Island, Florida

by Kim June 11, 2014

Some cities/towns/campsites/shit holes we love and others we can’t leave fast enough. And we never really know what we’re getting in to until we arrive. Sometimes that works against us and sometimes, like now, we are delightfully surprised.
