Hello men, women, and children of all ages. Come one.. come all.. and step right up to learn about the magic that is Belize. For my first trick I am going to turn my fingers into shovels and dig myself into a hole. Alright here we go. Before I left the jury of my peers, [...]
Sign up for South East Asia’s (endless) Summer Camp
“Hidey-ho junior rangers!” “Dooby, Dooby, Doo where are you? We got some work to dooo now,” “I’d like to take a minute just sit right there and I’ll tell,” Why I’m quoting theme songs outta thin air. It's time to fire up the DeLorean because we are going, Back to the Future! Think back to [...]
(Any)Where in the World, is Rita.
Elbow dabs sueding with the knee highs Dressed too fly wiping clouds from the eyes, Staying so fresh till death call it a revival on style Police and the cars are caught in traffic With Sting rolling in a lil red corvette License plate doesn’t say fresh, but the car still belongs to a Prince. [...]
When I was little I spent my days wishing on star fish Wanting to be a siren of the sea, Figured mermaid was the life for me. I assumed all sailormen’s tales to be my history Convinced I arrived from foliage of sea weed Rather than derived from a lineage of oak seed Or perhaps [...]
Africa: Day 2.Who Knows?
In March 2018 I spent three weeks in and around Zululand located in eastern South Africa. The time was passed in and out of touch with the confines of reality. It would take copious H's & A's outlaid in repetitious positioning to truly put this experience into words. Instead I crafted a memory real mashup [...]

Change your (Pre)position in Life: Live with fear, not in it
A tale of two wedding one real, one hipster; Much like Odysseus on his Arcadian quest, I've become a cosmic pinball. The past two months I've been bouncing back 'n forth across the Oregon-Cali-Nevada lines; hitting mountains towns, bumping across sea-sands, and rolling 'round lake-side rims. How exactly do I get around? It's not by [...]
Striving for the A from The School of Rock (3)
The yellow busses are rolling and the brown bags packing, it's back to school time. Buckle up Buttercups because boy do I have a story about what happened over my summer break. A tad early in the semester to call in sick, so I'll have to tell y'all over a different type of cold, ice [...]
How to Ball on a Budget Around the World (basketball not included)
"After five summers I traded burgers and fries for brand new skies"
The Streets Are Alive
Peace be to you and peace be to U2 I've been in a place called vertigo Since I was seven at Dairy Queen Conquering death-defying cones of ice cream Swirls of memories and childhood scenes Blend in the lines of A-sides and Z’s The dream machine screams it’s all peaches and cream Music is where [...]
