archive of wanderings

It’s nearly 2020. In 2007 I started a blog where personal writing, poems, and other reflections would live. Since 2016, when I moved to the Netherlands, it has been mostly dormant. Over 9 years I reflected on my family, deaths, spiritual practice, changes in my city (NY) and posted the beginnings of my journey to another life, first as a nomad, then as an art student in Europe, trying to start my life over. But now it feels like that journal needs another home, where randomness fits. I’ll be archiving all of what came under “Leanander” (after a great-grandfather) at Tumblr and starting a new site here at stjenkins.com. Stay tuned.
