The Selfish Artist

Who are you to be talking about “minimalism,” when there are people out there who sadly can fit all their possessions into a day pack? Who are you to be talking about “lifestyle design,” when there are people who have no choice but to hustle to make ends meet. Who are you to be talking […]

Returning Home

Ahh home. Sweet, sweet home. Sleeping in my own bed feels amazing. Working from the road was certainly doable, but I was surprised by what happened when I returned. Sure, I was exhausted and jet lagged. But as soon as I sat at my desk in my old “idea workshop” (bedroom), I was hit with […]

I used to think it was just me. I felt alone […]

Magic Days in Santa Cruz

I was all ready to sit down at a cafe and write about confidence, or following your dreams, or something. But then I met someone and everything changed. Imagine jangling crystal jewelery, curly silver hair, a maternal energy. She turned to me in line and asked how my day was going. I mentioned that this […]

Why Do You Travel?

As I make my way down the coast, I’ve started wondering about my intentions. Why am I traveling right now? What’s the point of this trip? To most people, the “point” of traveling seems self-evident. You get to see the world, meet interesting people, have adventures. Traveling in and of itself, is the point. Logically, […]

How To Get it Together when Things are Falling Apart

This is a guest post by Rebecca Louder. Every now and then, I seriously consider throwing in the towel and taking a horrifying minimum-wage job involving a uniform and name tag, just to quell my overwhelming, inaccurate self-judgment of being incredibly lazy and ineffectual. I partially blame my present bout of McJobitis on a combination […]
