Cycle of Life

I (Gerry) have enjoyed cycling as far back a I can remember. As children, we started off on tiny 3-speeds, with long handlebars and seats, referred to as "spider bikes". Those with the slightly sunnier disposition may have used the term, "banana bikes". View from Shannon's cruiser- bike route sign in site I lived for… Continue reading Cycle of Life

Minimalist Weekend

Ah, the weekend. We countdown the days each week until we finally arrive to that magical time... but how do you spend it?

Embracing a New Norm- Living Free

A year ago, Gerry and I would have been envious when others would say, "Happy Friday!" or use #tgif since our weekends running our business were consumed with managing staff, customers, hectic weekend hours, and wishing we were able to get away for a couple of days, like everyone else. Our norm for living was… Continue reading Embracing a New Norm- Living Free

Bodhisattva (Will You Take Me By The Hand)

The last few years have seen major shifts in our lifestyle and ways of thinking. From minimalism, tiny house living, mindfulness activities, and meatless eating, it appears transformation is in the air... and we're all the better for it. This momentum has carried over into my perception of religion/spirituality and the roles they play in… Continue reading Bodhisattva (Will You Take Me By The Hand)
