A Wanderluster’s Anecdotal Serendipities is inspired by author Jim Dahl’s annual odysseys, wanderlust spirit, and interest in classical literature. After his wife Maureen’s passing decades ago, he sold their home and began adventuring. At this time as well, not having ever finished high school, his curiosity about literature motivated him to delve into the classics. This sparked his desire to become a poor man’s version of an intellectual, which in turn led him to write poetry, mainly about his travels.
