At this point, I think we have accepted the fact that things aren’t the same as they were last year at this time. I also am not even sure what the “new normal” is. I am not going to get into all kinds of studies and politics. I am a writer. I write about the […]

On Becoming a Hippie #15 – Kansas City Here I Come https://www.earthtrekkers.com/how-to-visit-gateway-arch-national-park-st-louis/ We stayed one night in Yellow Springs, Ohio where Debbie and Steve, our traveling companions, would stay for a visit with their friend. Getting to Kansas City from Ohio should have been pretty easy.  It was only about 9 hours away, though we […]

There is something about the combination of outdoor art and nature that is calming and peaceful to one’s soul. To spend your day walking through high field grass and tiptoeing through the forest to take in the beauty of outdoor art is a beautiful adventure. Art, in times of stress, turmoil, and chaos in a […]

For me, one of the hardest things about making these big moves was leaving behind the people I had come to know and love. I’ve had to say goodbye to many friends over the years, and I think it’s hardened my heart a bit. On the other hand, it’s also enabled me to open up […]

  So now here we were back in my hometown, close to my family and Paul’s mother, back with our old friends.  Luckily, our time out west had narrowed our circle of friends, enabling us to choose who to hang out with more wisely.  At least, that’s what we thought.  It was true to a […]

While living in Santa Cruz, we met all kinds of unique characters.  There was a hippie couple with a baby girl very close in age to our daughter.  Jewel and I became new mom companions.  We were both young and newly settled there and were both staying at home with our babies while our partners […]

Driving along our main roads and side streets, one can notice rainbow creations hung on home windows, drawn on outdoor fences, and proudly displayed at area businesses. But what does the rainbow symbolize now during tumultuous times? Positivity and hope. “518 Rainbow Hunt: Spreading Rainbows Worldwide” is an online Facebook group created by Scotia resident, […]

We soon got tired of the first apartment we were in. It was certainly nicer than anything we’d lived in together before that, but we didn’t like being in a complex.  We had some new friends who asked us if we’d like to rent a house together, so we moved a little further from downtown […]

Feature 1. While living at Project One, we met some of the most interesting and eccentric people I had ever known.  First, there were the folks living in the mini-commune known as “The Estates” where we stayed.  Fred was a metal worker/engineer and was currently building an airplane from found parts in his large basement […]
