My current top two random life ambitions:
The first is to travel and get paid for it. Not in the Peterbilt and bull-hauler trucker sense. Rather, I’d like to wander to various places and translate my experiences into written words accompanied by dynamic photography.
I recently realized that being a journalist wasn’t necessarily my dream. Instead, all I ever wanted to do was tell stories.
So, my simple and initial ambition is to travel fairly locally and profile small towns. Or maybe focus on a single town and do some exploration over an extended period of time.
My second ambition is more of an obsession.
For about a decade now, I’ve dreamed of building strawbale homes.
This combines several passions of mine – the environment, being outdoors, manual labor (maybe not a passion, but I’ve come to miss it over the past few years), branding and marketing.
And if you’re saying, ‘just what the hell is a strawbale house?’ – here ya go.
But basically, imagine taking an agricultural byproduct (straw) and converting it into a construction material with R-values in the 50’s (average home is about 15).
Much more on these random, seemingly unrelated ambitions in the near future.
