Welcome to Beyond the Pail: Stories You Can’t Tell if Your Head is in a Bucket

These are stories of events that occur everyday in our communities that can offer excitement and fulfillment. They offer another way of looking at the world. You don’t have to fly thousands of miles to see a famous site for a few hours so you can check it off of a list of things you want to do before you die, before you kick the bucket. A more ancient way celebrated by many traditional cultures where there is a commitment to place and an understanding that a meaningful life is one that is lived by celebrating nature and personal relationships where you are. That a meaningful life can be here, where you are. Everyday experiences have a depth to them that fills the spirit. These are experiences which are only available if you take your head out of the bucket and live your life beyond the pail.
