"With interaction all possibilities open in a unique way that allows for creative energy to flow naturally, unforced, in all directions simultaneously..." -Joe Neyer

Aloha, and welcome to unforced. My name is Aaron Gabriel Neyer.

I was born to Joe and Becky, in Vida Oregon on September 6th, 1992.

I'm very grateful for the way I was raised. My parents loved each other and my brothers deeply and gave us a life that allowed us to be ourselves. Joe and Becky were definitely nature-loving hippies and they were also brilliant intellects, with each of them having a proclivity towards math. Becky was a math teacher and an herbalist, and Joe taught tai ji and built houses.

The quote above is from Joe's book, Too Much Fun Dying to Stop Now.

Becky died of breast cancer on July 24, 2003 and Joe died of brain cancer on April 23, 2015.

Like so many people in this world, their lives ended far too soon.

So much of who I am now comes from being raised by them and also from losing them. At times I feel that I am living for all three of us and it motivates me to live as fully as I can and to continue looking to understand what it means to be alive.
