We are Will and Nancy Martin. Will is an author of numerous books on Taoist thought, including the popular "The Parent's Tao Te Ching." Nancy has been, for the past six years, a traditional bookbinder - binding special editions of classic books and repairing cherished books. After many months, even years, of thinking about it, we have decided to dedicate ourselves to living a life of simple freedom and joy and to the nurture and healing of the Earth. We have given away our furniture, left our house, and are "on the road" as nomads, going where the Wind of Tao takes us and writing, sharing, and encouraging other elders of our society to find their own way of simple, joyful, Earth-centered living. We found a used motor home that is now our "house" located on a piece of family land owned by Will's sister in Mt. Shasta, California. The only steady income we have is Will's small Social Security pension and irregular royalties from Will's books. We will be depending on your support as we take this path. We will be keeping our income at a simple sustainable level. We hope, with your support, to  eventually have an inflow of $2500 a month (including Will's royalties and pension). This will meet the basic needs of our "home on wheels." If our earned income exceeds this $2500, we will pass the excess on to other people working for peace, justice, community, freedom, and joy in the world.

Will blogs regularly on freedomsimplicityandjoy.com and Nancy blogs on earthcenteredlivingafter60.com.  Please join us on these sites to be part of our community. Our quarterly income will be posted on these sites to keep our flow ethical and transparent,
Goals
$41 of $1,001 per month
With $1000 per month of support, combined with our earned income, Nancy and I will be able to maintain our "home on wheels" and continue to serve, teach, and nurture wherever we are led. If our earned income from teaching and writing increases, we will inform our patrons and have them consider shifting their support to other causes.
