Now

Inspired by Derek Sivers, this page includes a bit of what I’m thinking about and working on right now.

  • Improving our VW Transporter T5 conversion: After three weeks on the road in Andalusia with the van, we have some big and small changes to the interior furniture to help with cooking, storage, and sleeping. The next trip will be our move up to north.
  • Moving to Cologne, Germany: Things are coming together and we should be there in March for the spring, summer, and fall. I’m excited to be close to friends and have people with similar interests around.
  • Writing: During my sabbatical in Latin America, I learned that I need to share more. To that end, I’m working on posts about Islam, a fantasy novel set in eighteenth century Upper Guinea, and a podcast. They definitely aren’t even close to being completed but I’ve already said too much.

Lately, my little family has been dedicated to reducing our use of plastic. My wife sewed fabric bags of different sizes and we buy local, without packaging, or in bulk. We sometimes can’t help it, especially shopping on a budget, but it is possible to reduce.
