When to Bail Out or Stay the Course

This time last year, I was in the process of creating a huge and seemingly crazy dream. I decided in August of 2012 that I wanted to leave my job and my life in San Francisco and sail in South America. I had no idea how to sail. Very long story short, I found myself living the dream 3 months…

Turning 30: The Best Years Are Here!

One year ago, I wrote: "I want to rock my 29th year and slide into 30 saying, “Wow! What an awesome ride!” What I didn't write in that post was how trapped and miserable I felt in my life at the time. I wrote a song for the banjo two months earlier called "Two Sizes Too Small" and in the chorus, there's…

Hot Tub Ambassador

"Buenos dìas! Buenos dìas!" said the full-faced smiling boy, as he bobbed around the hot tub in his turtle and seahorse covered flota. He made his rounds to all the Mexican, American, and Canadian guests at the El Cid, the marina/hotel I'm staying at in Mazatlan, waving everyone hello before pausing on a manmade rock to speak with me.

The Adventure Begins (Again!)

I just finished a journal I began in August. At the time I was living in San Francisco, going through the motions. Job, apartment, and friends were all good, but it felt like something was missing. I took a “date with Jackie” day, which essentially means spending most of the day alone doing whatever I feel like. Most of those…
