I used to mountain bike a lot. Not slow, but not the fastest either, I was often eating the dust of those in front of me – having the time of my life and smiling through my muddy lips. I’m a geographer, athlete, urbanite, and artist; no one moniker sums up who I am but I try to keep smiling through all the dirt that comes my way. I tend toward tree-hugging, liberal views and am generally a pacifist.
Peregrination includes observations from my travels and interests (including natural sciences, geomorphology, ornithology, botany, math, knitting, books, bikes, and many other topics) with some of the other things I think about: peace, conservation, social interactions, and psychology. Posts may include travel tips, book reviews, science trivia, and social commentary; communicated through original essays, poems, art, photos, and short stories.
