SUZANNE SHAFER

Curious. That’s what I am and have always been. My curiosity often manifests as wanderlust and sends me adventuring in the “outbacks” of the western United States. It once enticed me to purchase a 1920’s fixer-upper and become an ardent DIY-er. It lured me onto my first motorcycle at the age of sixty-three. It requires me to read…always, to read. It keeps me dreaming big dreams. It also, occasionally, gets me into trouble…like the time it got me stuck in snowdrifts on a little-used mountain road and it took four men, two pickups, and a snowplow to get me and my PT Cruiser back to safety. Still, wherever curiosity points, whenever it beckons, I go—because it makes living one big adventure!

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.

This I know: Whenever I turn toward the unfamiliar, it changes me. I hope you are blessed with relentless, incurable curiosity—for it leads to a richer, more joyful life. I’ve created this site to share how it does so for me and, hopefully, to inspire you to sail away, at least occasionally, from whatever safe harbor is growing too small for your life. And if you enjoy what you see here, subscribe to my blog and share your thoughts in return.
