MUSINGS

For the better half of my life, certainly for as far back as I can remember, I’ve had some abnormal stomach tendencies. I’ve seen more doctors (holistic and traditional alike) than I can count on all my appendages, to no avail. I’m apparently totally healthy, but my symptoms tell me my body is not operating at full capacity. So inspired by a few interesting thought leaders in the biohacking space, I’ve decided to take matters into my own hands. I...

My most significant male influence in my life at the moment - who has the blessing of many more years of life wisdom than I do - has repeatedly lauded 28 as being 'the year' for female blooming. He claims that based on his years of observation, 28 is the age during which most of his female friends and partners really have grown into their own, found their purpose, and stood on their own feet. My initial assumption was that he was merely trying to...

Every so often I’m interrogated by friends from home, probing into how I've seemingly managed to escape the drudgery of reality. I receive the occasional inquiry as to whether there's a sponsor, benefactor, or trust fund I recently came into  - I presume to help justify their own lack of wanderlust. They’re the ones who resentfully comment that my Instagram makes me look like a "celebrity jet-setter" and vindictively claim I always manage to be...

Undoubtedly one of my favorite places on Earth, I planned a trip to Ibiza as a little reunion following my spiritual journey in India. Perhaps not the wisest decision in hindsight, given the stark juxtaposition between a solitary mission of introspection in a humble and impoverished part of rural India, and a glamorous Spanish island with a temporary accumulated wealth greater than the top 1% of America, famous for ecstasy-filled lavish parties a...

I wrote this journal just after celebrating your birthday and spending the better part of a month on the road throughout rural southern Africa permanently attached to your hip. You've been the best "adventurer in crime" and I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to explore the edge of the world times over with you. I’ll be honest that I was a bit apprehensive going into this one knowing I'd be spending more than four thousand kilometers in...

On April 25 we headed back to Cape Town to collect our “off-roading” vehicle. Once securing the RV, completing the usual groceries and provisions run, we were on the road. Heading due north of Cape Town, the first 2 hours of the ~5 hour trip was easy breezy. Breathtakingly scenic mountain views and straight smooth sailing. But as is often true in life, that which goes up, must come down. Upon exiting the freeway and turning onto the gravel dirt r...

Day -1 – What the Fuck Was I Thinking! So in the midst of my “Saturn Rising”, I took off to India for a little attempt at peace. My inner demons were bubbling to the surface and clamoring to be released. Clearly didn’t think it through, since India isn’t really famous for its serene cities of several millions, but I made it, and kicked off a two-month tour across the country. Who knew India was such a big space!? 21 hours on a sweaty overnight t...

I landed in Delhi at 2am with absolutely no plans. Totally lost, I roamed aimlessly around the airport until my sleeping pills wore off. I was clearly too stoned to venture outdoors in this foggy state. I had not even the slightest direction of where to turn the minute I stepped out of the terminal. I knew my intention of coming out here with no plan was to really push myself, to wander and see where I ended up. But what was I thinking not even h...

Just a few weeks ago, I inadvertently found myself skeptically walking into a 10 day silent meditation retreat in the center of the poorest region of India. It turned out to be what I can only describe as voluntary solitary confinement. While I was surrounded by nature, it immediately struck me that I was voluntarily enlisting myself in a yogi internment camp, most closely resembling the perimeter of Alcatraz. With 20 foot stone walls embellished...
