Welcome! Here you will find travels, musings, books, coffee, opinions aplenty, and attempts at homesteading. C.S. Lewis once said, “Even in literature and art, no man who bothers about originality will ever be original: whereas if you simply try to tell the truth (without caring twopence how often it has been told before) you will, nine times out of ten, become original without ever having noticed it.” I’m Shelby. This is my life. Welcome to it.
