Are You an Anywhereist (Or Do You Want to Be?)
Do you want to be an Anywhereist? What does it mean, anyway? Do you want to:
- Live anywhere in the world you want, for as long or short a time as you want?
- Live full-time as an expat in another country?
- Travel full time?
- Get away from harsh winters but still keep your home base in the community you’re in now?
- Explore someplace new for a month or two — longer than your vacation time allows?
- Stay in your home and community because you’re happy there, but you’re working remotely or running your own online business?
If so, you’re an Anywhereist!
Is Your Photo Collection Giving You Nightmares? Here’s How to Get it Under Control
When my husband and I were getting ready to move to Panama ten years ago, dealing with family photos was far and away my most difficult downsizing task. How could I organize my out-of-control photo collection?
We had photos in frames, in albums, in boxes, and in envelopes from developer.
And somehow, I had to organize them in such a way that we could move overseas without losing any treasured family memories.
At the end of December, I was fascinated to talk with professional photo organizer Marci Brennan. Together with her husband, photographer Chris George, she helps people edit and organize their photo collections (physical and digital).
They shared their tried-and-true approach, and threw in tons of tips and tools you can use to organize your own photo collection.

Do you ever get sick of seeing all these “2022 will be a great year if you just do this” types of content? I sure do. . .
I confess, as 2021 has drawn to a close, I’ve found myself indecisive in ways that I’m not normally.
Do I want to go this direction or that? Do I want to travel here or there? Will the trip be worth the aggravation of dealing with COVID restrictions and requirements? In what ways do I want to grow my business in 2022?
Nobody who knows me would ever characterize me as indecisive.
But right now, that’s all I am.
And I find myself getting a bit annoyed with all the people out there who seem so sure of themselves going forward. “For a successful 2022, do this! Make these goals! Forge this path! Do it this way!”
Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the Immersive Van Gogh Experience in Orlando.
I knew about Van Gogh, of course. Sunflowers, windmills, starry nights, and cutting off ears. . . but one thing I didn’t know was how intensely time limited his painting career was.
According to Wikipedia:
In a decade, he created about 2,100 artworks, including around 860 oil paintings, most of which date from the last two years of his life. [Emphasis mine]
Two years, to create nearly 2,000 pieces of art.
