The Transition Mission Bit

Greetings again from me and my now longtime squirrel-buds! As the world gradually reopens out there (with mixed results here in the States…), I’m still pretty much sticking to home. No, not because of my gray roots. Okay, not only because of my gray roots. I think this squirrel and I both just prefer to […]

The Bit of a Camping Conundrum

Recently, I faced a pretty big decision about continuing a relationship.  Not one with a person – but with a place. See, last summer my lovely friend Suszi invited me to spend a week with her and her crew at the Lair of the Bear.  It’s a camp for UC Berkeley grads near Pinecrest Lake […]
