This is a page of what I am up to Now. Inspired by Derek Sivers.

Travels - I am just back from just shy of four weeks off island. First stop was the east coast of the US for a family wedding. That took place up in the Catskill Mountains of New York state, and was my first visit there. Truly beautiful. I wrote about some of my wedding experiences here.

From there I crossed the Atlantic to spend 10 days visiting my parents. The weather was beautiful, making for a lovely English summer. The only downside was Hay Fever rearing its ugly head. It was then back across the pond and the US to meet my wife on the US west coast. We spent a few days with friends and visiting West Marin - a serene time, again blessed by perfect weather. Having been back a few days, I am now settling back in to island life.

Reading - I usually have a few books on the go at once. Currently they include the following:

Outside - We returned home to our vegetable garden looking a little over grown, and much of the produce eaten by those staying in our house while we were away, but still there was produce to harvest, including deliciously sweet tomatoes. We’ve stated cleaning out the beds out and replanting new crops, as well as installing an irrigation system. A fresh host of lettuce and Arugula (UK: Rocket) is already getting started.
