Turning 37 has brought about some interesting reflections thus far. It’s been a mix of things, one of which is an increasing dissatisfaction with my comfort zones. The remedy is to carve out time to be creative for myself.
In this instance, my wife Jen and I have been drawn to, and emboldened by, an increasing amount of travel. We like seeing what’s beyond our front door and enjoy what the natural world has to offer. As we head into the future, we have become deeply aware that we must live considered, and as my friend Noah Stokes pointed out, intentional lives. With that duty, we aim for a sustainable, low maintenance, and considerate impact on the world. Not large, not massive, but being where we need to be, when we need to be.
The culmination is a long-standing idea that I’ve been wanting to do, and now’s the time to do it. It collects the evolving viewpoints we have about living in a modern era, but with deep respect for the past, and what the world has to offer, without the need to create manufactured experiences. It was born out of my personal ethos of “Seek experiences, not materials.” It’s called The Well Worn.
