If you are looking for a peripatetic philosopher, keen observer, challenger of the status quo, appreciator of all that is grand, noticeable, and worthy, and someone who’s handy with tools, you may have come to the wrong site.

Hello. I’m Robert. I’m simply an ordinary guy — not that there’s anything wrong with that — trying to make sense of the world.

I am an unapologetic curious citizen of this world with an insatiable appetite for adventure, nature, fresh air (and breathing in general), beauty, photography, cultures, fairness, justice, new ideas, noble ideals, authenticity, dogs, strong, kind, and compassionate people, good coffee, wool socks, maple syrup, and reliable machines. Always willing to learn, I’ve become a sailor, a motorcyclist, a racer, an amateur radio guy, a marathoner, a traveller. But I don’t know how to ride a horse.

On this site you will find miscellany thoughts and links I found interesting. I like to think I bring a thoughtful and substantive perspective, but often I miss the mark. Mind the gap.

You may also want to know that I am currently under a long-term contract to a 17 lb. Cairn Terrier named Skye.

Interested to know more? Really? Go live your life. Go make your own mistakes, as I did. Get outside. Travel. Learn something new today. Get to know the world. It’s big and beautiful and divers and mostly good. Go see it for yourself. You don’t get another go at this.

I hope you are well,

Some people call me Bob, and that’s okay too.
