My Journey


✅Checking Back In

Share

I am looking at this blog and it appears that I have not made any type of entry or done much on here in about 3 years. My latest post shows my trip to Italy, which was back in 2017 which is kind of crazy to think about. To be honest, I’m not really sure what made me log back in here. Perhaps it’s a number of things like wanting to put something down into words about what I’m up to, have been up to, and how my experiences these last few years can potentially help others. I am not […]


Planes, Trains, and Automobiles From Tuscany to Zurich

Share

I love the comforts of home, planted into my Lazy-Boy, stretched out on my couch, or strolling around my beach town community of Ocean Beach, CA, But at the same time, I feel more alive and somehow pleasantly at home when I am thousands of miles away, trampling over cobblestone streets, and when I am surrounded by unfamiliar places, faces, languages, foods, and sights. There’s a wanderlust that builds up inside of me, tugging me away from the familiar, and then begging me to stay. I find pure joy and happiness as I find myself strolling down dimly-lit, narrow streets, […]


The Road Leads Back to Cave Creek

Share

It doesn’t matter how many beautiful places I’ve seen, and how many places I’ve been. When all is said and done, Cave Creek, Arizona is still one of the coolest places there is. Yes, the place has grown tremendously from the time I lived there during the late 80’s and throughout the 90’s. Yes, some of the old stomping grounds have been bull-dozed over to make room for fancier condos, commercial buildings, and stuff I would say is built for the sole reason of satisfying the yuppy. But beyond the growth and the influx of yuppiness, the beauty, small-town delights and warm […]


Picture This Lyric

Share

It’s all about finding projects, passions, labors of love, and things you enjoy in life. As I mentioned previously, I recently bought a new camera, which has helped fuel my passion for taking photos again. When I was younger, I always used to have my camera with me, and I even used it to make some pretty good money for awhile. But somehow, somewhere along the way, I let that passion turn to ash, instead of letting it continue to burn. Now that I’ve found this great sense of enjoyment again, I’ve started a new project called ‘Picture This Lyric,’ […]


Birding Instead of Newsing

Share

It was quite the week in American news and politics. If you turn on the television or simply decide to open up the internet, you would immediately think that the world is crumbling all at once. There’s violence, hatred, back and forth shouting, and blowhards on both sides, whatever that means, bickering at each other. There’s love vs hate. Hate vs love. Opinion vs Opinion. Quite simply, things have just gotten completely out of control. So, instead of spending a pleasant evening reading about or listening to people tell me about everything that is bringing a major suck to my […]
