Uluru is Many Places I’ve Been Before

4 Comments 17 July 2014

  The sun was just starting to peak out around the reddish rock. I pulled down the brim of my baseball cap to shade my eyes as rays of light shot out of the clouds and onto my path. The path around the base of Uluru was nearly empty in this section. Not many tourists [...]

Home Sweet #Room753

4 Comments 17 June 2014

It has sunk in this morning, hitting me like the big waves that I’ve been staring at on the beach. This is the first time in 2 ½ months that I’ve had a chance to sit and just reflect; to meditate on life a bit. As the waves rush in, the white water drowns my [...]

Rickshaw Run Thrills and Agony

10 Comments 03 June 2014

“The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat.” I can still see the poor skier loose his balance and slide down the mountain with skis criss-crossed and pointed every direction.

Sleepless in India – It’s Real Now

20 Comments 20 March 2014

It’s 4:11 am and I’m awake. This wouldn’t be horrible except I went to bed at 1 am. Jetlag is something that comes with traveling, yet I have to believe this is more than jetlag, it’s anxiety and nerves. As the minutes of darkness roll on, I gradually hear the streets become filled with noise [...]

Crazy is Beautiful

It’s so easy. We turn on a facet and there is water. Clean water gurgling through the pipes and tap. We go to our refrigerator and water and ice come out of the door. We turn on our shower, we flush the toilet, use a public water fountain – access to water is everywhere. Just [...]

Unwanted Advances Along the Lycian Way

I squinted my eyes and peered out onto the bush filled mountain searching for the trail. “Look, do you see it?” he said as he placed his hand on my knee. “The trail is right here.” Pointing across my body. I still couldn’t really see it but decided to fake it since it would bring [...]
