I went from traveling in Central and South America for 6 years of digital nomading, entrepreneuring, and exploring to years of R&D, small business, a book, a couple of startups, and this is all underpinned by a continual state of learning to now. Now is an interesting time.

I’ve found myself as a man of reason.

Deep down like everyone the desire was always to be heard, but along the path, I realized how one is heard is important as well.

How do I want to be heard?

Or do I?

For the past few years, the ‘Or do I?” has dominated my journey.

If you are reading this then the choice was made.

Well…

Who am I?

I am persistent, fierce when I need to be, and mostly calm, I’ve been a performer, a traveler, an entrepreneur, a fisherman, a singer, a partier, an artist, a programmer, a leader, a failure, a success, a realist, a skeptic, a scientist, a philosopher, a researcher, an inventor, a jester, a teacher, a creator, a writer, an asshole, a lover, an observer, a runner, a fighter, and certainly not least importantly – a friend.

I reserve the right to invoke any of these hats at my leisure.

Well…

What’s the intent of this?

I’m closer than I’ve ever been, yet feel further away – while apparently contradictory, let me explain so obtusely to only inspire questions. I’ve spent the past 15 years of my life on a very specific type of journey – looking under, at first, every rock, then understanding rocks and being a bit more deliberate in my choices. Foregoing traditional paths in my own pursuits I have found myself… here.

Well…

What now?

A bit of a good time, some different perspectives, trials & tribulations, success, failure, a fair bit of fuckery, a good deal of kindness, and authenticity to foundationalize it all.

This is a bit of an open book. I’m in the midst of many projects, trying to train for some ultra running, and deciding to broadcast my journey. There is a wide sea from automation to anthropology (wrapping the alphabet). I will also be open to any reasonable debates (not interested in topics in which common ground and logic can’t be found). Above all the intent here is to establish a reasonable dialogue – or monologue as it stands now 🙂 and through that conversation establish a reference point, build resources, and bring reason back to the table.

Into The Swing of Things

Some Thoughts

Into The Swing of Things

Life happens and often it is sincerely lacking in any semblance of justice, fairness, or other placated ideals that really only exist in bubbles. So, what do we do when life happens? Personally, I find myself falling back into the rabbit holes in which I’ve done the most exploring, finding familiar territory and chipping away at walls that have been etched to their seeming extreme. Sometimes I find myself a little nugget or even a tunnel into another rabbit hole that I didn’t realize were connected. It is a way to gain some perspective, that familiar territory reminds me that in the journey of life I’ve come far and with each of those steps I’ve connected many things and yet many more connections exist.

Once upon a time, I used to write thoughts like this often. I suppose the excitement of abandoning the simple and trekking down a path of uncertainty & adventure was inspiration enough. A desire to heard certainly supported the effort, but I found over time that my desire to be heard was diminished. In part, it was due to my enlightenment of the world around me. A realization that challenge my young hubris. I contented myself to explore these vast cavernous expanses until I had some form of understanding that merited being heard. At some level I simply didn’t want to be wrong, at some level I didn’t want improper ideas, thoughts, or works to define me.

This kicked off quite the adventure – one that I will be telling for the rest of my life.

In the tradition of our seemingly cyclical reality, this has come ‘full circle’, although that isn’t what a cycle is. In this ever dynamic existence, even the cycles that seem to revolve over and over are not truly doing that. Sure, the meta-occurrences seem relatively aligned, but that alignment is happening in an entirely novel place and time and the culmination of the events in the previous cycle is adjusted by this constantly changing position. Much the way our sun’s procession around our galactic plane, we will never be in the same spot twice. Even if we found ourselves in the same spot by some bit of wizardry the sum total of the events that happened between A&B would change A into B.

Life is full of these cycles and I find myself at the culmination of more than a few, stepping from A to B I’ve found my desire to be heard again. The intention is to articulate my adventures, research, experiments, and experiences into something that sometimes pushes these cycles faster and aims to slow down others extracting the richness, joy, and beauty we often cruise by awash in the many other cycles of our lives.

Indeed life happens, it is happening and there are conversations to be had so I hope you join me on this continuing adventure as I wish to have quite an array of conversations nudging cycles, and making life happen.
