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.



I LOVE YOU ALL

New



A new tire, a new attitude, a charged battery and I´m ready to head north tomorrow morning. I just feel more centred than I have been in years. More within my own thoughts, my own feelings, my own direction. I suppose I feel as if my world is my inner world, and as long as I am taking care of it, everyone else can take care of themselves. My world is fine, and I have done the work to achieve it. I am glad to see the Canucks are up 3 to 0, as their loss tonight will take a couple games to recover from.

Expect to get closer to the Costa Rican border by tomorrow night.
