This blog started off as a dumping place for various thoughts and ideas, often philosophical and spiritual in nature, but to be honest I grew a bit tired of talking about those things. Too much talk, not enough doing, too much theory, not enough application. Too heady. So I've decided to turn this blog towards the great outdoors. Instead of Notes from the Outside being a reference to my less than conventional position on a variety of things, I'm going to make it more of a reference to nature, wildlife, trip reports, bushcraft, and the like.
There will still be philosophical posts, because that's just who I am; but I hope to keep them more to a nature and wilderness focus, about things that come to me as I ramble about in Florida out-of-doors. I will of course leave all the old posts up, as I still stand by much of what was written in them. You may still expect the occasional poem as well.

About the Author
|It's such a good day!|
I'm a big fan of sustainability, permaculture, and have a goal of someday homesteading in a similar vein as did Thoreau in his cabin at Walden Pond. I am a definite fan of his. I also love Edward Abbey and everything he's ever written, though I'm not a clone of all of his ways of thinking. So like these and other authors, I sometimes transition into politics. Usually it is through an environmentalist's lens, or the social justice lens.
If you're interested in checking out what I'm reading, here's my Goodreads page.
A glance at the Labels list on the right will give you a good idea of what I post about here. There is also the Featured Posts list, which changes from time to time.
