the state or situation of being alone.

There can be a solitude in the forest
though only of an ignorant stranger
surrounded by the quiet commotion of wonders
immune to their being
blind to the intimate

Vancouver to Poland

Vancouver to Poland

On September 3rd I’m up before sunrise. Bag packed my friend drives and drops me off at the Vancouver International Airport. Departures. I have three flights ahead of me. Vancouver to Toronto, Canada. Toronto to London Heathrow, UK. Heathrow to Warsaw, Poland. I’ll arrive in Warsaw tomorrow afternoon, and be greeted with a gigantic, long anticipated, hug from my love who I haven’t seen in around 4 months. I’ve been working and saving for this moment and it can’t come fast enough.

Howe Sound Crossing

Howe Sound Crossing

Howe Sound is a body of water just north of Vancouver, British Columbia. It is comprised of a number of small fjords separated by a number of islands. I grew up on the Sunshine Coast to the north, and have ridden the BC (British Columbia) Ferry across the sound on more occasions than I care to remember. I rode it across the other day. I submit the following photo evidence.

 Adventures lurk in the moments
of our everyday.

Some take place on mountains, some in conversations, some in choices chosen, or let to pass.




Our world is full of people with a diverse range of talents, experiences, and ideas.

In my travels, digital and corporeal, I am fortunate to meet many an inspirational individual, and this is where I get to introduce them to you (and you to them as well).



Perspectives influence how we interpret and interact with the world.

We grow up believing a combination of what we’ve been taught, what we’ve seen and heard, and what we’ve assumed/deciphered along the way.



If you want to build a ship, don't drum up the men to gather wood, divide the work, and give orders. Instead, teach them to yearn for the vast and endless sea.
