DIYing the Next Part Of This Life


I am a DIY philosopher. My entire life, physically and mentally,  has been DIY.  I’ve been making up ways to survive since childhood.  My attempt at a traditional life was a big enough disaster that it made the 11 PM news.  Making up rules as I went along, I single parented  my son and daughter.  And my personal evolution continues.  For several years, I’ve chosen a word or concept to incorporate into my life.  It started with simplify and has moved through compassion, hope, comfort, clarity, peace and 2017-profilepracticing contentment. At this point, I am a compassionate, peaceful malcontent addressing a new phase of life.
