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 […]

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 […]

The Shape of Time Being The Only White People In The Room In Selma Alabama

The turn missed wasn’t there — a phantom limb. Goddamnit, Google Maps. My own phantom limb wasn’t technically a limb at all, it was a mind still at sea, adrift upon the Gulf, baked by the sun not kissing me back home. My mind rested atop a weary body that […]

24 Hours in Bergen Norway

Cross your fingers and say a prayer to your favorite Nordic God. With viking luck on your side, here’s to hoping your own personal 24 hours in Bergen Norway will produce the same kind of weather laboratory dreamscape my family reveled in on March 27th of this year. Driving west […]

Of Howler Monkeys, Breadfruit, Brown Sugar and A Bridge Into The Rainforest — A Belize Travel Story

The ride is advertised as taking anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes, but feels twice that. The sun-worn digital clock in the center of the dashboard tells the truth; but two hours could have easily passed before the potholes, gravel, and dusty congestion of Belize City gave way to virgin […]
