“No, no! The adventures first. Explanations take such a dreadful time.” ~Lewis Carroll.
‘Jack of all trades and master of none’, my mom used to say to me but my motto is more like, ‘better a misadventure than a missed adventure.’ With all of the exciting things to do, how could you possibly do anything twice? Or take the time to blog about it, for that matter. I’ve been writing on again and off again on the internet since 2001 and in that time I have accumulated a handful of blogs, plus somewhere near a thousand blog posts, but I am often very behind because I there is always another adventure to get going on. No matter. These days I write only for myself and this space is meant to be a catchall for my ramblings and photographs, artwork and whatever else I have going on.
These days that includes relocating back to my hometown of Vancouver, changing careers from project management to therapy, going to grad school to support that, dancing flamenco, riding motorcycles, scuba diving and hanging out with my dogs.
My personal mission is to live a fulfilled and happy life, full of adventure and to leave every place better than I found it and my preferred vehicles of choice for that work are deep connections, intense organization and working my ass off.
