Laughing Our Way Into The Teen Years

“So you’re telling me, that if you saw Adolf Hilter walking down the street, you wouldn’t kill him?” “Well that’s not what I was saying. But sure, let’s talk about this…entirely new topic”. My fourteen year old daughter has had a quick wit that belied her age since I was […]

Writing Sometimes There’s Fog

Sometimes There’s Fog

There’s a fog that rolls in off that particular coast, in that specific spot. It happens often but most have gotten accustomed to ignoring it. It doesn’t last longer than it should. No use bellowing about what will blow over soon enough. Ya just gotta wait. That fog, and the […]

The Shore Path

I walked away. I’ve been doing this more often of late. Leaving my family on a park bench in Bar Harbor’s bucolic Village Green, with ice cream cones in hand, I set off down Albert Meadow in search of two scoops of private tranquility, away from the sound of other people’s […]

Self-Propelled, Battery-Powered and Kid-Friendly

Most guys would think I’m daft for not having had my kids out doing the yard work years ago. They’d say something like, “dude what’s wrong with you?” (That’s a sentence I hear a lot anyway) These guys would then get more pointed with their critique, adding “that’s one of […]

Dynamic Water (Life Lessons From Whitewater Rafting Down The Arkansas River in Colorado)

There was little separating the early summer sun and us. Helmets, short sleeve wet suits that would absolutely kill in a comedy sketch back on dry land, tattered orange life vests that’ve been through a few wars at sea, and a lathering of spf 50 that should’ve really been reapplied […]

What It Feels Like To Swim with Manatees in Crystal River, Florida

There I was, at 6:45 on a balmy Wednesday morning in mid-July, not quite ‘up and at ’em’, squeezing myself into a thick wet suit, 5mm for better buoyancy to make a passive swim with manatees more of a reality; second skin if I were a walrus. My private manatee […]

Just let go of the cruel effects of salt water on nuts and bolts

The Loneliness of Travel, The Self-Doubt of a Creative, and the Life We Are Living and Missing

Nobody would’ve had him in their hideous death pool for he was brazen and bold, unabashedly unorthodox, and achieved fame on his own terms. He was punk rock. He had overcome his demons, earning streetcred by dashing through the mist left by the ghosts of poor choices. He was in […]

A Few Thoughts on Leave No Trace

I asked the question when we were about 4 minutes away from the toy store where the teen works. We were heading there for the start of her 10am – 4pm shift this morning. I wish we had longer to discuss “Leave No Trace” and I wish there was a […]
