This blog's for ME

Almost 25 years old, asking my parents if I can sleep in their bed with them. I had thought I was going to be the 25th Prime Minister of Canada. Things had changed. 10 years later, I was still a scared little boy. The time had come to slap myself awake. One Saturday morning, November 19th, 2009, I declared to the world I would be riding my 10 year-old motorcycle from Vancouver, BC Canada to Rio de Janeiro, Brasil, and back.

The official departure was August 28th, 2010. A group of well-wishers saw me off at 8:03 am.

I arrived in Rio de Janeiro around 6 pm March 1st, 2011.

My return to Vancouver came on July 5th, 2011 about 2:00 pm.

Drug & alcohol abuse, ADD, social anxiety, health, chronic pain, night terrors.

So many concerns. But I am far more interested in this question: Do I have the capacity to make this trip despite all my shortcomings?

My mission: To inspire myself to face my fears, enlighten myself on how all living things can peacefully co-exist, enjoy every moment, and see the world as plentiful and generous.

Go ahead. Call me crazy. Call me anything you like.

I'm out to save my world.

One day down 29 to go

Well folks lots of cravings; crazy 'double down' advert on the telly tonight, and it sounded so absurd I thought it was a joke - two pieces of chicken with cheese between them, wrapped in paper! Who needs the bun? Well, being allergic to wheat, I was tempted, so tempted. It seemed the perfect meal!
Anyways, I poured out my first 5 gallon pail into my fish tank tonight. Not a big deal, except that I didn't tell you I broke my left arm, mid-humeral shaft about 7 weeks ago. Arm wrestling. This got me to thinking, hmmm, maybe my bones have been weakened by my diet too. My healing seems to be doing well though. Doctor said it was good I quit smoking, as he said it would have taken considerably longer. That made me feel somewhat better, although let me tell you, I could have done with a big ciggy after the unimaginable pain settled down.
Off to a vegan meal that my great girl is cooking tonight.
