INTO THE RABBIT HOLE

I’ll tell you a not-so-secret secret…I’m working on a new book! Haha My life has been a bit consumed with it, and it’s even strange to take a few minutes out to write this post. But I’m making popcorn, so I figured I’d use that time to record this moment for my future self…haha ;) - Read More -

THE TRUTH

As I hike through the Valley of Paul today, I keep thinking of truth. Of how some people go through extraordinary measures to avoid telling the truth and end up causing far more damage than if they would have told the truth in the first place. Of how we lie to ourselves. How we avoid - Read More -

LIFE IS A JOURNEY

While reflecting on a couple of lovely days spent traveling around my beautiful island of Santo Antao, I’m inspired to think about the¬†journey of life. The featured photo was taken from the crater of a volcano here. How does someone come to live in the crater of a volcano? How do all of the decisions - Read More -

WHY ASK WHY?

This morning I was contemplating the folly of asking why. Since I wrote a book of questions (Meditative Questions), I decided to check my book to see how many questions I had asking why. I found only two (both on page 41) asking why you want what you think you want. I can’t argue with - Read More -

NEW LIFE

Before leaving for my month long trip to Thailand for Muay Thai training, I was inspired to do so by one picture (below). For you see, I was having a really bad day…followed by a sleepless night…and I knew I had to do some things differently. The discomfort was because I needed to let go, - Read More -

WHAT IS FREEDOM?

America is often called the “Land of the free,” but ‘America’ was founded as a result of the slaughter of millions of Native Americans. ‘America’ was built by slaves, brought to the nation, mostly from Africa, against their will. Even after the Emancipation Proclamation, the slaves and their descendants were never truly granted equal rights. - Read More -

IT’S NOT WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE

It’s not what it sounds like…it’s what it is. When I think back to life in Corporate America, I remember all of the times people discuss long hours spent working and early morning calls. Another person would chime in about even longer hours. Though the spirit was often one of complaint, it became a bit - Read More -

CABO VERDE

Four months ago, I embarked on a journey I did not understand. I was called to visit an island in the middle of the Atlantic ocean for reasons I cannot comprehend. I felt connected to a place and to people I had not yet met. I took a risk. I remember after having a book - Read More -
