Solitude

Seeking stillness, adventure and God’s guidance as we surrender on another road trip. A man, his dog with God- can’t ask for much more than that.

NOWHERE TO GO, YET SOMEPLACE TO BE

Over the past four years I’ve had a constant pull to “go toward my mountain.” I have a hard time explaining it. I’ve mentioned this mystic concept in previous posts, yet haven’t dove deeply via my writing. I have a few theories about this “pull” and what it means, yet cannot be certain what “my…

My Favorite Part

Life is precious. I think most would agree with these words. As you can imagine, I’ve been asked quite a bit lately about my road trip. One common question- “what was your favorite part of the trip?” I think clarity comes over time, yet I from my perspective today my answer just might surprise some….

The End of My Journey with a Letter to Me

I’m not sure I’ve had another year full of more soul searching, purpose defining, and answer seeking than I have over the past…

Bits ‘n Pieces

Starbursts got it right with the FaveRed packaging, I’m just saying. If Sour Patch Kids would figure out that the best colors/flavors were red and blue and package just those, I’d buy a lot more! I try not to indulge in candy often, but when I do, I prefer Sour Patch Kids or Skittles (I’m…
