USA road Trip 2015 – Day 1


April 22 2015 My TRACK LINK Here to SPOTWalla. April 22, 2015 – An important day to remember.  The day I left BC for New York after my 18 years of growing up in Canada.  Now, Dual citizen, I am returning  to where it all started.  I mean where I was born. Seems like I […]

Surreal

Sleepless in Maple Ridge – Rambling thoughts


What keeps one up at night?  What goes through the mind to not allow one to rest and refuel like “normal” folks? Plenty of things I suppose.  I have a lot to share and I always do but the reason I am up tonight will have to wait for another day.  I could say I […]
