A Life with Contrast

In Just Thinking by Daniel1 Comment

A life with contrast is more stimulating than a stagnant one. Stark contrasts provide a greater appreciation of the small luxuries and details that become overlooked with too heavy a dose. So, I have been back in the Dominican Republic for a few weeks now. It is amazing how easy it has been to fall back into the rhythm of …

New Trip’s Eve Resolutions

In Just Thinking by Daniel0 Comments

I have never been much of a New Year’s Resolution type of fellow. I suppose it is as good a reason as any to take a step back and analyze your life. Set up goals for the upcoming year. But why does it have to be on New Year’s Day? I cannot recall ever setting New Year’s resolutions but I …

I have been doing my best to get well ahead of the list of tasks at hand but this particular leg presents new …

A Season of Uncertainty/False Start, One Year Penalty, Replay Dream Plan/Marooned in New Bern/The Boy Who Cried Sailing Trip

In What's the Plan? by Daniel0 Comments

OK.  It has been quite a winter and early spring.  I kind of got depressed and distracted and did not update my blog, post anything on Facebook or talk to most of my friends for about three months.  Kind of crazy!  Not my brightest hour.  This is partly because there was no news to update anyone with.  Plans constantly changed …
