My Life Dilemma: To Quest or Not to Quest

That is the question. Isn’t it? I’m not trying to wax philosophical like Shakespeare (ok, maybe I am) but seriously: is this not the GRAND QUESTION OF THEM ALL??!   To Quest or Not to Quest   This is life in a nutshell. My life, your life, all of our lives: to play it safe,…

Stowaways!

Eighteen–and counting. That’s how many countries I’ve visited so far. But is it true? Sure, I’ve traveled through that many countries, but have my feet touched the ground there?

My Messy (Non-Linear) Life

  For the past month or so, I’ve sat down to write, had a good start to a piece, only to then hit the save to draft button. Translation: no courage. My excuse was that my writing wasn’t good enough. Not tonight. Many people take a path in life (vis-a-vis their career) that looks pretty linear. Usually, it involves some…

Staring at a Castle

Sometimes it’s good to change locales. I usually sit in my office, which is sans window; it’s more like a closet than an office. Very white and officy. The furniture is nice–plush even–but not enough to overcome the vapid surroundings. But today I sit in a more spacious venue. A huge window sits to my right…
