What is Paul doing now?

Traveling back to Guanajuato
Waiting for bus in Lenox to Boston. From there by plane to Guanajuato.

I’m back in Mexico after visiting my kids for two weeks in June 2918. Then I lived in Belize to volunteer on a Permaculture Farm through July. 

I reFired by moving out of my apartment in Lenox, Massachusetts in 2017. I consolidated all my possessions into two suitcases and one backback

Back in Barrio San Martin, Guanajuato, Mexico

In Guanajuato I continue to… 

  • help people reFire
  • live my own reFirement story

Besides that I’m focused on…

  • hiking, bicycling, strength training, meditating, eating healthy food
  • blogging about how I create the life I’ve always wanted
  • Developing My Deep Bucket List
  • figuring out how to persist with my own values in the Tump era


  • launching an online workshop
  • running workshops for expats
  • living each day as if it will be my last
