This blog is a project I started as part of my homework for the Jas. Townsend & Son video course on how to get involved with living history. I feel entirely free to go back and edit individual posts without warning and to my heart’s content, as this entire project is a continually unfolding draft, and it will evolve as I do. I’ve created it mostly to see where it takes me. I haven’t told anyone about it. It’s open to the public, and it’s not exactly a secret (except it kind of is), but I’ve just chosen to be quiet about it, and haven’t linked it to anywhere. I’m doing this for me, to see what I think, and as a place to keep notes, and record experiences, and hopefully make some connections as I travel down this path. And if it accidentally helps someone else, well of course that’s a lovely bonus.
