Portfolio & Full Circle Blog

Mission

Travel the world, research, write.
Connect science and education online.
Keep the humble.

I moved from the Last Best Place to the Lone Star State in 2009. From the most beautiful place on Earth to the ugliest. All by myself. I thought my life was going to end, but it only began.

Safaris are my 360-word stories and adventures as lonestarjr2, the Last Best Rowell, and how everything in my life has come full circle. All Safaris and content of Full Circle, and the40x40challenge.com are copyright 2013-15, and all rights reserved by me, lonestarjr2, the Last Best Rowell.
