My overall aim for the embryonic beginnings of this site is to chronicle, support and further establish the development of a wilderness homestead. It is an outpost rising up from an abandoned settlement site out on the far northeast coast of Notre Dame Bay, Newfoundland.

As my chosen 'logo' exemplifies, it's also an attempt at merging the humble framework of the outport Newfoundlanders past and deserved present, with the inevitable acceptance of the technologies that will encompass all our lives in the future. Call it an act of survival if you will. Shouldn't technology represent advances that improve the lives of the total human spirit and consciousness, as well as benefit the overall ecology of the planet? After years of deliberation, I truly believe that the Internet has more of a potential to bring about increased awareness and positive change than if it weren't in existence. And this is why I've come onside.

The 'walktheline' sustainability project is an ever-evolving experience that I feel intensely dedicated to. If it seems a bit vague even after you've perused this site's pages, that's o.k. It's my life's work, which will continue long after the lights have gone outů Countless folks have inspired me to continue, when the journey has often seemed impossibly futile. These pages are for my friends, my family, my co-conspirators and for my guests. Outport Newfoundlanders seem genetically bound to 'take in' the scoundrel and the prince alike.

'They' speak of the endangered species known as the north Atlantic Cod. From where I sit there are far fewer island inhabitants, born following our illustrious marriage to 'the mainland', than there are fish out in the bay. My friends and neighbours seem to be the ones threatened the mostů

There needs to be more of a voice emanating from the outports. With this business endevour, these online journal entries, photos, shared experiences, conversations, etc., perhaps some semblance of a once stoic race can be celebrated and epitomized. Hopefully it'll enable others an opportunity to grasp a lifestyle and philosophy that, granted, should represent merely one angle of the collective human experience.

I've abandoned the systemic obligation toward conversion.

"We don't have to wait for some grand utopian future.
The future is an infinite succession of presents,
and to live now as we think human beings should live,
in defiance of all that is bad around us, is itself a marvelous victory."
