Here I go...

Finding magic under the stars of the Camino Santiago de Compostela

About This Blog

I began this blog in 2009, right before attempting to walk the Via de la Plata from Seville, Spain up to Santiago, a distance of 1000 kilometers.

On that trek, I made a decision to leave my 14 year long relationship and set out on my own, focusing on my fiber art.

I was sidetracked when my mother made the decision to move to Portland, then BACK to her hometown in California within the span of 3 months.

If a person believed in Karma, the events of last summer should have me paid up!  After helping my mother get settled, I found myself in the interesting position of being homeless. During that same month, I lost my beloved grandmother and was betrayed by a person I was naive enough to trust.

It was not as unsettling as one would expect, however, and not completely unexpected. So, instead of going into a panic, I decided it was a good time to practice what I learned walking the Camino -- to simplify my life -- and that project became the next section of this blog.

I'm continuing to live frugally. Last year my entire income was under $6,500.  

Now, having gotten rid of nearly all my possessions, this blog turns to rediscovery of lost wisdom, arts, and tips for simplifying everyday life.

I hope you will continue to follow and find it of interest.
