Today/Last night I was reminded about how very important sleep is in our lives. After a lovely dinner and evening chatting with my Warmshowers guests last night (which I wrote about here), I got all ready for bed, turned my computer off, and read for a bit to make myself sleepy, and turned out the lights … [Read more…]


In case you’ve never heard of it, Warmshowers is a website to facilitate hosting of bike tourers around the world. It is similar to Couchsurfing in that it is a community of reciprocal hosters and hostees, but Warmshowers is only for cyclists. I’ve wanted to do a long bike tour ever since I got into biking, and once … [Read more…]

Today, as I was listening to my favorite podcast, I learned about a remarkable man. Rob Greenfield is basically an activist adventurer determined to help people diminish their negative impact on our planet.

I know that rice and pasta are calorie dense and last a long time, but I want … [Read more…]

PrimalCon Oxnard 2014!

I started my Primal journey back in March, and have been really excited about it. Unfortunately, nobody else I knew was particularly excited about it. It’s hard to make such a big change and have no one to talk to. So when I decided to attend PrimalCon this year, after only 6 months of living … [Read more…]

Acro Fun

Today was the second time having an AcroYoga Meetup in Lompoc! Only one person came again, but he’s a cool guy. We tried the few poses we started with last week: Folded Leaf and Bird. Both were much better! Then we tried Whale and I think Reverse Bird. We also tried to transition from Reverse … [Read more…]
