Since ending our journey of 10,000 miles, 21 states and 31 intentional communities, many of you know that we chose to live at The Commons on the Alameda cohousing community in Santa Fe, New Mexico. While ending our peripatetic wanderings was hard to do on some levels, having a stable life off of the road has also been quite a blessing for both of us and little old Tina the dog.
With our son and daughter-in-law only 90 miles away in Taos, a wonderful community to call home, and well-paid nursing work here in the Santa Fe area, life has solidified for now into a sweet lifestyle that has truly fulfilled many of the original goals of our journey.
Blogging is indeed a way of life for Keith in many ways, but maintaining this particular travel blog eventually became one website too many for Keith to manage once he began working again. However, we both managed to keep this blog going for an additional six months once we moved into our little one-room casita at The Commons in June, and putting the blog to bed with the dawning of 2011 seems somehow fitting.
So, if you would like to keep in touch, here are some ways to do so:
Our coaching website, Rives Carlson Coaching, offers a snapshot of what we are up to in terms of our new business as Certified Professional Coaches.
Laughter Incorporated, our Laughter Yoga website, is a portal to our Laughter Yoga business, with many resources related to the worldwide phemomenon of Laughter Yoga.
Keith's blog, Digital Doorway (devoted mostly to nursing and health care, with a little spirituality and personal reflections thrown in) is a good way to check in on what Keith is up to.
Here are some links to find us on Facebook and Twitter:

Life continues to be an incredible and wonderful journey, and we are blessed beyond measure with friends, community, meaningful work, health, and a firm belief that the Universe (or God, All That Is, The Great Spirit, or whatever you would like to call it) continues to guide us along our chosen life path.
With love, blessings, and immense gratitude,
Mary and Keith
