Koh Phangan is like the Bermuda Triangle of New Age Spiritualism. It seems to hold travelers and drifters as though they are ships in the Bermuda Triangle, but this little slice of heaven makes me wonder why anyone would want to leave? And yet I am. It’s time to get back to dry land. Forget…

I’m leaving Portland for a while.  We’ll just call it taking  a break.  It’s not you Portland, it’s me. In all honesty, Portland is one of the best cities I could hope to live in.  Every time I fly home to the PDX Airport I feel fortunate to call this place home. I know it…

I Quit My Job

I have decided to make some big changes in my life and those big changes start with quitting my job.  Movies always make quitting look so glamorous, like you walk in, tell off your boss, maybe start something on fire and leave, and look never back.  In reality, it can actually be very sad saying…
