Look at your feet
This past summer, I took a road trip across the U.S. One of the people I talked to said that you shouldn't look at the top of the mountain because its intimidating. "Look at the middle of the mountain." He said. And then I forgot about it. Cut to about a ye...

Time, Place, and Holding on
A fond dream of mine is to fall asleep and live other lives as I sleep. Maybe I do. What do I know? Maybe that's why I wake up tired sometimes. Sometimes I think about what the current James Bond is doing. I mean, we're all living out our lives at the same ...

Present
Its so easy to numb. And so difficult to be present. I'd like to think that even though we have a multitude of things to distract us, its not more difficult to focus than it was 200 hundred or even 2000 years ago. Drugs, sex and alcohol has been around sinc...

Bittersweet Symphony
There is a strange quality to how memory and sentiment cause me to feel somehow both full and lonely at the same moment. As if I was part of a ancient tree, but am an isolated branch, living through the lens of ancestry, and yet reaching my growing fingers ...

Missing Shoes
When I was younger, I used to misplace my shoes. I actually still do quite a bit. I would wander around the house, looking in all the same spots over and over again, getting frustrated and asking my mom if she’d seen them. She always said the same thing:  “...

Someone wise once said: "If you keep asking questions, you'll keep getting answers."* This has been somewhat of a theme in my life, as I'm sure it has been for many people. So, in the true spirit of mankind, I will ask another question today. Everything mea...

Camping Alone
I had my tent, my food, my whiskey, my wilderness. It was pretty much perfect, except for the gale force winds that were screaming through the tops of the trees and trying to kill my tent, my hopes, and my dreams. I was finally settled around the roaring fi...

I Keep My Eyes Fixed on the Sun
There have been some cloudy days recently in normally sunny Southern California. The rain has been tapping on the roof of my car and sliding down the edges of my apartment, and when I try to look up, it stings my eyes and pelts my face with little furious d...

Only Temporary
I've always wanted to be a rockstar. I wanted to be in a different city every night and wake up in a new bed every morning. I wanted to constantly be surprised and delighted and deal with problems as I ran into them, without waiting for them to find me. I'v...
