Adventurer, world explorer, thrill seeker … not really. Just a guy who spent nearly 40 years writing and editing for newspapers and one really good news website.
Well, that’s over. And so is the struggle to live well and with dignity in this country.
Sure, we could stay and work until we simply can’t work any more. We could wrestle with the home mortgage, the cars, the ever-draining cost of living, the medical expenses … or … we could find a place in the world where our dwindling dollars will go far, a place with history and natural beauty, a place that will challenge us in ways wholly different from those that we know today in California.
A place without big malls and ever-bigger box stores, a place without Starbucks or KFC, or McDonalds.
A place where we can take the time to just stop in our tracks and appreciate the world and people around us.
We think we might have found such a place.
My wife, Rose, and I will be moving to Belize in early 2014. But there’s work to be done before then, and so much to learn. You’ll find out about it on this blog, oftentimes exactly when we do.
So stick around!
