You may remember that I relaunched my business website in June 2012 under Flying Meta. So, what happened? Where did I go? Why the slow trickle of posts to the website?
Big transitions, shifts, and head-scratching experiences.
Last spring we decided to move to a beautiful homestead in the middle of nowhere… off-grid, acres of forest, pond, lots of edibles, and a rustic eco-friendly home.
