modern bike for old man

for a brief time during this past month, i was thinking about taking my motorcycle along on this epic road trip. as fun and cool as it would have been to zip in and out of traffic in big cities with dorje, i decided to opt for hybrid bike to be the secondary mode of transportation when i got into towns. since my foot injury isn’t healing anything soon, i have reengaged in my first outdoor passion of riding a bike. i was telling uma about much freedom the bike gave me when i was young and […]

thoughts from the mountain

enjoying a weekend at sierra hot springs by myself and taking the the chance to get more clarity on things. granted, even these solo therapeutic solo adventures are filled with things to do. it’s quite easy for us humans to fill out days with busyness and i think back about my time in the desert on the vision quest. it was definitely one of the few times in my life where i had to face the darkness and pain of my soul and wasn’t constantly distracted by activities. to be honest, i didn’t even do a very […]
