  • Making Art Six months ago I signed up for an art class. 1) I started a painting, one I’ve been trying to finish ever since. The experience, challenging & very humbling.

Making Art forced me to confront some of my […] 21 responses October 31, 2017
  • Summer of Hurdles Lots of people dream of moving to Hawai’i. A few people do, most of them turn back. I now understand why. My plan seemed simple enough. Spend the summer driving around the Big Island with Wildcat. Find a charming little town, then an apartment, settle down. My intention: reflection & healing. After so many years […] 27 responses October 15, 2017
  • Greece in May I’d forgotten how beautiful Greece is in May. Wildflowers are in full bloom, crops have begun to grow, everything is green.. Persephone returns to much rejoicing.

There were dinners, and parties, pre-parties, and late late night after-parties. A few hard working weekends too. And no shortage of learnings. 1)When I found […] 22 responses March 9, 2017
  • Reflections, 2016 New Year’s resolutions fascinate me. To borrow a geeky math term: local maxima. We all intuitively know we get stuck in sub-optimal points in a multidimensional space, ∈ The Human Experience. In other words, if you define living as growing, repetition and stagnation are the death of us. We, societies the world over, have converged […] 34 responses January 5, 2017
  • Happy Holidays Woke up this morning feeling a little under the weather. Packing up your whole apartment, moving 2000+miles, plus a few all nighters, turns out can still do that. Nonetheless, totally cathartic – you wouldn’t believe how stuff accumulates over 15 years in one place. The nomadic life, a dream of mine since the Apple days, finally a […] 12 responses December 25, 2016
