My name is Anne and I live in Glenview, Illinois.
When I was in the 8th grade, my history teacher told the class that civilization was descending into The Next Dark Age. I have begun to suspect that he was correct, hence the name of the blog.
I write about volunteering and philanthropic efforts in my community. Also, I journal all the books I read and crafty things I make (such as they are). There will be plenty about travel and as well as things I enjoy online.
I share a house with my mother, two dogs and two African Grey parrots.
