Excited isn’t the word for the arrival of the new Mason Jennings album, the songs have enticed many words and thoughts. Years back I blogged about freedom and what I thought it would take to achieve freedom, and years later….I still don’t know what’s holding me back.  I suppose it’s the conditions in which we’re […]

Tonight as I sit here listening to Mason Jenning’s new album, I can’t help but think about Breaking Bad, a show I reluctantly watched after it was proclaimed one of the most successful shows ever. — The premise alone made me steer clear (conservative suburban man gets cancer, sells meth to pay his medical bills), […]

Amidst random surfing I’ve discovered two items that will compel me to write more often. First is from Brene Brown who says “Courage is to tell the story of who you are with your whole heart.”  Very courageous indeed for a dolphin to swim amongst the sharks.  While typing up sentences you think of the […]

Recollecting on 2012 the most unique experience of my life was a trip to Iceland for our honeymoon.  So why head to west Iceland and a potential to run into the reincarnate Axlar Bjorn? Hotel Budir in HDR, a place as memorable as it gets.  Fish and lamb are on the menu….everyday.  I recall hearing the […]

The teacher had you write a letter, you were eight years old About the man that you’d become and the positions you’d hold July 24, 2012 No Comments

Recollecting the year, the prevailing thought in mind is ‘boy what a difference a year or so makes.’  Tonight sipping on a glass of Vino and listening to tunes, I’m confronted by the though of all the challenges faced in adult life, and how much different it is flying solo vs. a duet or tri […]

Back when I was 25, I used to think the key to solving the worlds problems meant getting all the ‘smartest’ people in a room and hashing it out.  After years […]
