Welcome to the Adventures of Tillie!

I am an Alaskan with a penchant for craft, road trips, endless thoughts, and a pug mix named Meeko. I currently live in the city although I grew up at the base of a mountain on a farm. I own a truck and love to explore, hike, and enjoy life with my partner. On my blog I will talk about random things, share some parts of my life, and throw out some writing tidbits here or there as the inspiration strikes. Click the “Menu” in the upper right for more 🙂

“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.”

Gandalf, Lord of the Rings

Our approach to life today becomes increasingly mechanical. Our main aim is to produce things, and in this process of this idolatry of things we transform ourselves into commodities. People are treated as numbers. The question here is not whether they are treated nicely and are well-fed (things, too, can be treated nicely); the question is whether people are things or living beings.
