Formerly Kindred Spirits Gallery of Ocean Isle Beach, this site features the work of artist Timberley Gilliam Adams & writer/musician Rahn Adams. is a reflection of our move away from a fast-paced, stress-filled life of working full-time in public education.  We retired on August 1st, 2016.  Before then, time flew by, we ran errands, attempted to keep up with endless school and yard work and visited family members.  After retiring, Rahn created our new blog called “Half Fast Living: Exploring life in the slow lane” to share our adventures.

This is our exploration of trying to live at a slower pace with a new focus on people, places and things that are important to us.
