July Update

We interrupt your previously scheduled programming to provide a current update. We've been at home for awhile now since our trip West in the Scamp. About a week after arriving home, there was a  celebration of life for Gene, Julia's Dad, who died in hospice earlier this year.  In many ways, it was lovely; I'm not a big fan of funerals.   About twenty people gathered for an outdoor fish fry on a Friday afternoon at one of Gene's favorite restaurants on Lake Wisconsin.  Lots of people told stories about their experiences with Gene, and there was a poster board of photos from throughout his life.   Later, some of his ashes were spread on the water, where Gene loved to fish.  This week, Julia was kayaking on Lake Wisconsin, and a big perch jumped into her kayak.  Coincidence?  She thinks not.   Allie was home for a week.  I did some hiking with Allie and my niece Anna around Devil's Lake.

Why "Brewed Journey?"

“Brewing” is an interesting to me.  The common definition is to prepare a liquid by steeping, infusion, boiling or fermentation.

However, the definition I like the best is..."in the process of forming."  

As applied to people, we are always in the process of forming through the choices we make and our experiences.

Over the years, I’ve worked as a potato picker, newspaper route boy, soybean walker, hay maker, McDonald’s grillman, grocery stocker, assembly line worker, security guard, lawn and garden worker, paralegal, attorney, freelance writer, newspaper reporter, small business owner, and caregiver. 

I have traveled extensively, often by foot, including a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail in 1996.  I’ve been a beer homebrewer for over 30 years.  I home roasted coffee for many years, eventually opening a commercial roastery and coffee shop.  After selling that business,  I continue to roast and brew coffee for the fun of it.

If anyone needs to reach me, I am easily reached through the comments of this blog or via gmail, using the name brewedjourney.
