I’m a nomadic photojournalist-hopeful, currently teaching English on a small, mountainous island on the southwestern-most tip of South Korea. I have a bit of a problem with feeling like I was born at the wrong point in history, which I remedy by spending my spare time as a historical reenactor. I’m a bit of an adventurer, and I have a penchant for tallship sailing, flying planes, and traveling the world alone.

I’m always planning something, with one foot already out the door. I’m generally hard to tie down and prone to sudden shifts of interests and location. I’m a contemplative Quaker on the more traditional end of the spectrum.  I’m a voracious reader to whom nothing is too boring to learn, with a propensity for spontaneous roadtrips to other parts of the country. I am very much in love with a wonderful Frenchman with whom I share a dream of living in rural Vermont or Pennsylvania, and we both have a fondness for shooting antiquated firearms and sewing 250 year old clothing.  I live a relatively simple lifestyle (no cell phone, no washer or dryer, no dishwasher, no car, no tv) by choice, and try to roll with life’s punches as much as possible.

I’m an opinionated yet respectful liberal, a loquacious Quaker, an obsessive social-networker, an internet junkie of the most addicted sort, and most of all, a wanderer, in both the literal and the figurative sense.

I also write ALL THE TIME, especially since I have inordinate amounts of free time here in Korea. I have several other blogs, which are:

The Past Reflected – My reenacting photography blog.

Freeze-Frame – My photography blog.

Waygook Next Door – My Korea blog.

Shut Up and Listen – My spirituality blog.

My Students are Doomed – My teaching blog.

101 in 1001 – My blog of goals for the next 2.75ish years.

    Hello DF – thanks very much for the compliments you left in your comment the other day over on my blog. Very nice to read coming off a holiday! Of course you may add mine to your blogroll(s). Which one would you call your “main” one so that I might do the same?

    cheers,

    I’d love a blogroll link to “Eagle and the Bear.” Mind if I link to your photo blog, “Freeze-Frame”?
