We typically make our nest in interesting locales for 2 to 6 months at a time. And, although we don’t go round with grazing animals and a moveable tent, we consider ourselves to be modern day nomads. And we can each fit our essentials in a medium suitcase and a daypack.
We have ended up with some roots in a studio apartment with Neil’s sister. So, we spend a few months there on ocassion but we soon grow restless for adventure. Nomadic life is addicting for us. We had no idea how much we would truly love seeing the different ways people make art, make rituals and make a living.
Here is where you’ll find some helpful information about how we create a life for ourselves that is location independent.
