Designing a Life

Published on October 10, 2017, by in Personal, Travel.

It’s been over a year since I’ve posted an update to my own website. Thankfully, I guess, no one reads it. So there is no pressure to maintain it. Just a $11 a year renewal fee from Godaddy, and a $2 a month hosting fee from Dreamhost. I managed to lock in a WordPress promotion

On the way home

Published on August 5, 2013, by in Personal, Travel.

Flying over Japan is like flying over Florida. I see lots and lots of lakes, rivers, farms and trees. I guess most 1st world nations infrastructure looks the same from the sky.

It is crazy everywhere, it is just a different kind of crazy…everywhere

Americans talk about hitting rock bottom… bankruptcy, divorce, foreclosure… Those aren’t even close to rock bottom. Our “wealth” is so deep we can’t even see rock bottom; much less hit it. Imagine living in a shack no bigger than a storage shed and still having a landlord. Someone actually charging money for you to live under
