Mal Stephens was accidentally born into a time of technology and disaccord. Though his love of simplicity and nature is contrary to the world today his love of community trumps both, so he is willing to integrate modern conveniences when efficient. At his time of life (middle-age), he is compelled to share his skills and knowledge with others who may also be at odds with the status quo. His hope is that by linking arms with individuals and groups of like mind, he will have done his part to bring community, peace, and self-empowerment to the world. Through reading his blog posts you will find out what he is about if not who he truly is. He is not generally prone to writing about himself in the third person but sometimes does so for effect.
