What I’m Up To Right Now

Have you ever wondered what so and so is up to lately? They have a website but, their about page is old news – you know who they are, after all. And maybe they are even active on social media, but it’s hard to get through all their favorite memes and minute life observations to find out what is really going on.

Me too.

One of my favorite modern thinkers, Derek Sivers, came up with an idea to create a “now page” that addresses the sweet spot between “Hi, I’m Theresa” and “I found this article/meme/situation interesting.” 

Here’s mine.

Tom and I are still living in Yosemite West and making a great life together. I remind myself daily how lucky I am to be living this life.

Despite various nagging aches and pains, I’ve been able to get out and do a ton this winter – from skate skiing, to ski touring, to rock climbing. There is always more to do!

Work is chugging along at a delightfully steady, and not too consuming pace. Tom is still focused on running our Yosemite vacation rental, and I am still doing contract marketing work for a small number of local organizations. My long-running volunteer activities with NPS are winding to a close shortly, and I’m planning to take the summer “off” before looking for more volunteer possibilities. Since my work is solitary, I’m hoping to find something nearby and in person. Let me know if you have some ideas for me.

Meanwhile, I am awash in non-outdoorsy hobbies too. I switched from French to Spanish language classes through the Duolingo app. This year, I want to ramp up drawing and painting efforts, specifically around Nature Journaling and sketchnoting. I have a growing number of sewing projects on my list, and I’ve started to learn more about Stoic Philosophy.
