Reflecting On A Few Things: School Is Winter...

Feb 5, 2015 by

                              As of today, I have been back at school for a month. After an epic year off, I’m back at it. You’d think I’d have written a lot more about it by now, but the reality is that I’m keeping the details of this transition mostly to myself. As I get older, sharing less is becoming my comfort zone. I have a few theories as to why, and even those, I will keep to myself. I will just say this. School is winter. Last week, the chill got to me.

I looked around us and saw the article written on the restaurant in the New York...

Map On My Wall

Jan 17, 2015 by

  I put a map on my wall this past week. It was going to cost $249 to have it framed, so I taped it. I then put little red stickers to mark off where I’ve been. Some cities and places weren’t listed so I had to guess. I stepped back and looked at those little dots. After more than ten years of travel and over 40 countries visited (some of them more than once), my map looked kind of empty. People always tell me I’ve travelled so much. It’s true, I have. Yet, it’s insatiable. This isn’t a glass/map half full or half empty scenario. It’s a fact – there is much of the world I’ve yet to see, so much I still crave. I looked at that map, at the little red...
