For a long time I tried to compartmentalize my experience as an emerging and then apparently full blown “adult”, thinking that I should write about my educator life as separate from my writer life as separate from my adventurer life and so on. But it’s the same, of course. Each moment tethers itself to the next. Work is inextricable from play and play inextricable from creativity until it just becomes — life.
Join me in my exploration of something like (my) adult life. Please leave comments (if you’re not a trolling hater) and questions if something speaks to you.
