Peaceful, life-transforming revolutions are very much a part of my life. Long before the term downshifting was coined my family and I were living it; no, it is not about stick shift driving but a slow lifestyle, a revolt against the American dream rat race :). My years in academia were enlivened by the friendships that blossomed when we established dLIST, an open access repository in which faculty could self-archive; it was our own little contribution to the global Open Access movement, the revolution to free peer-reviewed literature and a revolt against the rising costs of scholarly journals. Now, I've joined the ranks of indie authors. The summer of 2012 I learned the unforgettable lesson of what it means to do something in God's strength. All glory and honor to our awesome Triune God for the Garden of Grace: A Daybook of Faith and Healing!

I am so very glad God called me to join His revolution and gifted me with the passion that fuels my ventures. A couple have been documented:
- Sprouting Up about the Garden Club (at my church, Irvine Pres)
- Global Thinker about dLIST, Digital Library of Information Science and Technology (from my former life as a Univ. prof.)
