Giving Thanks for Beds

5 Comments 26 November 2014

Someone just hit the power button to my brain and my mind flickers on and boots up for a moment at 3:43AM. I feel uneasy, confused, panicked. I open my eyes to inky darkness. I can’t see. My mind races like it’s an Indy car going from 0 to 60 mph in 2 seconds. I’m [...]

Eight Years of Wandering

16 Comments 08 September 2014

Today – September 8, 2014 marks 8 full years of wandering the globe nomadically for me.  It’s a special day that I like to stop and think about where I’ve come, how I’ve changed, and where I’m going.  However I’m not going to reflect upon that here as it all needs time to resonate.  Instead [...]

Week In-stagram Review Not Exciting All the Time

6 Comments 29 August 2014

Sometimes the problem with living an exciting life traveling all over the world is that you start to believe you have to be exciting all the time.  And let me tell you – it’s impossible for any human being to be exciting all the time.  And that’s why sometimes I crash…and crash hard.  Try as [...]

6 Comments 28 August 2014

We took a left off of highway 15 and drove through the north side of town. The familiar old weathered homes were there as usual. In desperate need of paint, love, and care I couldn’t help but wonder if people were cooking up meth in those homes in this small village town in Nebraska. My [...]

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. He seemed to bounce across the ground as the well-known words are spoken to kick of the Wide World of Sports every Saturday when [...]

The Niece Project Version 3.0

11 Comments 15 May 2014

Summer is about here – and it means kids will be on summer vacation – AND it means that another Niece Project is in motion! I’m starting to wonder if each niece is trying to ‘outdo’ the other. Considering we have some of the same genes, I can completely understand the desire to go further [...]
