life: examined is a compendium of ideas, thoughts, and questions about living a creative, intentional life—written to you from my perch in Portugal.

life: examined is reader-supported through Buy Me a Coffee. I am so grateful to all those who support this humble publication!

Why subscribe?

Well, why not? You have questions, I have questions. I bet we’ve pondered some of the same things.

Perhaps reading life: examined will make you feel less alone or like less of a weirdo. But if you still feel like a weird0, that’s okay, I like weirdos (takes one to know one).

If you subscribe, you’ll get full access to the newsletter and website, so you’ll never miss an update. I’ll experiment with length and form; some issues of life: examined might be tiny, all photos, or even poetry (don’t let the “p” word scare you).

Be part of a community of people who share your interests, who like to ponder life’s questions, and who are seeking a simple, more meaningful and intentional life.
