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.

Retired Title

My journey from the depths of fear, anxiety, depression and low self-esteem would not have been possible without my friends, colleagues, and family. My honesty may be uncomfortable at times, but if I can give one person the feeling that they are ok when they need it the most, I know my job has been done. Sometimes, that one person might only be me.

I am learning how to communicate in ways that work for everyone - that people feel understood, and easy to understand me. This blog is about my inevitable stumbles, and hopeful steps back up to laughter, connection, and hope for everything on the earth.

Let's have some fun, too!
