My name is Matt. I live in Seattle, across the lake from the place where I was born and raised. What I’m trying to do, along with my wife and daughter, is find a way to live responsibly and sustainably in the place where I find myself. It’s hard. Every force in the world seems to want to push us into unthinking consumerism and spiritual somnolence.
I’ve never been fond of compromise, but that’s what some of this comes to. Someone wise once said, “Don’t let the perfect be the enemy of the good.” I’m trying to see the good and pursue it as I’m able, leaving perfection for more energetic souls and allowing for trial and error, failure, grace… even surprise.
I consider myself and all of us God’s journeymen. Getting started is the only imperative.
