About Skeeter Buck

Welcome! My name is Skeeter Buck, my real name is Anna, but that’s another story. I live in Colorado with my lovely wife Alexandra, our son Daniel and our two dogs Lucy and Gracie.

I believe it is important to do something each year that scares me half to death – and that’s what brought me here. My wife and I have just re-entered and are launching our new careers after 14 months of intentional living in Sonoma County. Yes, I confess being in the heart of California’s wine county during this journey was amazing, but it didn’t make ‘being’ instead of ‘doing’ any less daunting. Well, that was until it was wine thirty and time to light the fireplace.

What I experienced in my personal journey is that family and community are two of the most important things in my life. And with that, a healthy and conscious family and community can change the world.

My experiences led me to bring one of the traditions (Toothless Fairy) we created for our son to life, to share with other families.   This led me into the world of publishing and self-publishing. This inspired me to start my own publishing company, Night River Press, in order to help others who want to bring their creations to life.

Until recently, I have spent most of my adult life working in the non-profit world.

My most humbling and meaningful work has been teaching prevention education and providing emergency services for men and women living with HIV/AIDS and breast cancer.

Now, I am sharing these creations as well as my thoughts and experiences through my blog. My blog allows me to share some of the little things that make my heart beat and brings clarity, joy and compassion to my family and me. It is my hope that I can bring some of that to you as well.

“A person who is a master in the art of living makes little distinction between their work and their play, their labor and their leisure, their mind and their body, their education and their recreation, their love and their religion. They hardly know which is which and simply pursue their vision of excellence and grace , whatever they do, leaving others to decide whether they are working or playing. To them they are always doing both.”
