REST

I have been traveling (around the world) for almost a year straight, and it is hard to put into words what that feels like. While the experiences, people, and places have been great, my body has reminded me of the importance of rest. While I feel the excitement of new things on the horizon, it - Read More -

THANK YOU, HOUSTON!

I originally came to Houston with the idea that I would be here just a few weeks ago…but that was almost three months ago! A series of (fortunate) events have kept me here and it’s been a really beautiful experience. I’ve met so many wonderful, beautiful people! And it’s been a delight for me to - Read More -

THE PLAGUE OF PERFECTION

When I notice a minor typo in an email I’ve just sent, I have to continually tell myself to let it go. When I find a typo in a social media post, I immediately edit it. These things don’t really matter, but I still want to get them right. I think about these small mistakes - Read More -

BURN ALL DOUBTS AND FEARS

As we enter a new year, let us burn all of the doubts, fears, and anxieties that we felt in 2018. Let us celebrate our resilience as we overcame all that threatened to tear us down in the days past… and may we recognize that, like a phoenix, we continue to rise from the ashes - Read More -

TRAINS

During my short time in Japan, I feel like I rode half of the country’s trains. The process was made massively more complicated by all of the luggage I was carrying. As I think back on those times, I am happy that I made it! I battled countless escalators, treacherous stairs, and was saved a - Read More -

FUSHIMI INARI

Visiting Fushimi Inari in Kyoto was another surreal moment during my whirlwind visit to Japan (4 cities –Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Yokohama–in 5 days!). I had seen pictures of the thousands of torii (Shinto gates that symbolize that everything on the other side of them is holy) at Fushimi Inari in Kyoto…and I’d dreamed of one - Read More -

JAPAN

I have to say first that I don’t even love the picture above…haha! But it’s so perfect. While I was standing in Ueno Park in Tokyo, next to the cherry blossom tree (not in bloom, it was autumn) that inspired me to write my first published book (Meditative Questions), I was overcome with so many - Read More -

EVERYTHING THAT I EXPECTED, NOTHING THAT I EXPECTED

When I traveled to Thailand, I had expected to stay at the Lamai Muay Thai Camp and train daily. I did that. I expected the become physically stronger. I did. And I expected to meet good people. Another check mark. On the basic levels, my month-long stay in Thailand went exactly as I expected. But as I - Read More -

NOMAD

I’m writing this post from Thailand…at the Lamai Beach Muay Thai camp in Koh Samui. It is one of my favorite places to unwind and focus on physical well-being. I’d been trying to keep up with all of my travels and impressions on this site, but after a few months—and twice as many cities—I have - Read More -
