Welcome to this collection of thoughts and ideas I’m compiling as I approach retirement and look forward to a very different life than the one I have now as a full-time graphic designer working in the world of not-for-profits.

If they fascinate you too, I’m delighted that we can spend some time together.
Like all personal odysseys, I expect this one will shift and morph. You may find my posts hovering over a topic for a while, and then darting off to look at something different that catches my eye. There will be some clear themes however, and I had some fun trying to categorize them. And once I got stuck on the letter s, it became even more challenging, but I do like the result.
