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.

Do We Really Know?

I love to fish. I love to shoot guns. I love to drive cars. I like to blow things up. Talking to an associate the other day, and he's convinced there is absolutely zero chance of humans causing global warming. I agree, there is a chance that global warming is not caused by humans, or even that they have caused holes in the ozone layer. Spoke with a lady on the cruise earlier today who said "Something's going to get me eventually I might as well just do whatever I want." God, I would LOVE to have that attitude, and I have taken it on from time to time. I think I have to to maintain my sanity sometimes. Who's business is it anyways.
