Reclaiming the Beginning

I could hear the birds begin to sing, the dark giving way to the haze of the early day and the mist over the hills rolling through the hills in the distance. It was through the in-betweens of the wooden planks that make up the walls of my bungalow where I could see the night …

Budget, Generosity and Selfishness

Today at the gym I was told off by someone when we were going to get food for taking too much and being selfish and he was right. I was being selfish and for that I am sorry. People have been so generous with me I should show the same courtesy as they do. I …

2 Years and 12 Countries (so far)

In 2013 I had hit a wall that I just couldn’t get over, searching for work, scraping the bottom of the barrel for anything if only to keep busy. I didn’t believe that I could because I had been kicked to the gutter more times that I care to remember. Here is the thing I …

If I ever met….

If I ever met love, she would be a passionate kiss, a push and a challenge to be more than I could ever see within myself.

If I were to meet hate he would try to punch me in the gut so I never forget the pain.

Seeing versus Experiencing

So I’ve been traveling for 2 years, more than half of that has been wandering Asia, the rest hanging out in Pai, Thailand doing Muay Thai. If there is one thing I know is that many tourists that come in and out are about maximizing their short time in a place which is understandable. I did the same thing for a long time, spending no more than a few days in any one place before moving on knowing I had very little time until I had to move on.

The Root of No Belief

People travel the world for a number of reasons this is what we say for many it is a holiday, the ability to explore, the oh so common I’m finding myself, to having to do or see something very specific. I don’t think those are at the root of why we need to wander. Sure they are part of the reason but not the stem from which the reason grows.

Why to get into the Ring and Why Not

So I’ve been doing Muay Thai since August last year at Charn Chai in Pai, Thailand. I was never that physically active before this time. Since I’ve been traveling I’ve walked a ton, trekked mountains in 40 Degree Celsius heat but have never really been consistently physically active until now. So here I am thinking …

Thoughts on “What I am Doing”

I have no clue what I am doing, who I want to be or why I am here? I’ve been traveling for more than a year and a half and although I am not the same person I was I am still searching for who it is I want to be.

Wandering the Mind’s Eye

As you search for inspiration for the story you are taking so much from the world you see but as you perceive it which is changes everything. It is the difference between seeing the brighter side of its darker one

What it takes and what you have to Believe

So what does it take to build a world that exists within the confines of your mind’s eye and give it some sort of tangibility in this world? I don’t know and I’ve been sitting on a world I created for the last year. I spent a ton of time in 2014 building the all …
