Around The World On A Motorcycle | The Journey Continues

Long Goodbyes.

Long goodbyes. You know the kind. There’s always something to be said, a hug to share or a bit of sage advice your bound to give or receive when you leave someone.j Whether you’re heading to the grocery store, back home or around the world. As my possession slowly transformed from loose belongings strewn around […]

Hanging In Humboldt

Today I go with Johnny A and his girlfriend Kendra to pick up Sienna, Kendra’s 9-year old daughter who will return home after two-weeks at Camp Winnarainbow. These two-weeks were the first time Sienna and her mom have been separated for such a time since birth. Camp Winnarainbow is a joint venture of Wavy Gravy […]

Where Are They?

I know I brought it. Is it still in the back of the GTO? Shit. Did I forget it? Did it get packed into my storage […]

Last Night.

My final night in Southern California. I’ll spend it with someone very special. We’ll have one final quiet evening and a long goodbye at The Ritz-Carlton in Laguna Niguel. We order room service from the fine dining restaurant. Swim in the pool and chill in the Jacuzzi. We gaze over the Pacific. The white water […]
