About Us

Brian & Deya met in Vancouver Canada. After a few years together we were married and made choices. One was not to have children the other was not to take life for granted. The rest is yet to come.

The grind is on


So we are fully involved and very busy. The sun has disappeared and it’s now raining all the time, just as I remember it. I am studying up to 47 hours per week now and despite being tired I enjoy the work.

Deya had faced her first, very obvious, re-integration challenge in her Project Management program at UBC. She was so used to the last two years in which we would show up someplace get things done and move on that when she got to the program and her cohorts were woolly gaggling she could barely keep from going postal. Well maybe I exaggerate a bit but it is true, we have to slow down to the pace of the people who have their whole lives waiting to be played out.

I find myself settling comfortably into this same pace and feel like I need to remind myself that this too is impermanent. We continue to develop relationships with new people and try to make time for the old, or recently old, this blog effort being one result. It’s important because we’ll be on the move again soon, in a different way and for different purposes and hopefully will reengage us with ‘the route’ and all its gems.

I hope everyone is well and the various storms and earthquakes are more interesting than dangerous for you.
