Inspiration of soldiers

Forget politics, this has nothing to do with war so please don't make comments about if we should be in it or not. I stumbled across a video on youtube that brings out the true meaning of what family love is. if it does not inspire you nothing ever will. Media and news constantly broadcast soldiers ...

recovering from the day

After wraping up another 16 hour day I told myself. Its ok, we will start over tommorrow for yet another. The truth is, there is no recovering. It's a snowball effect. The average person I would guess spends 3X more time working than not working. Whats the best way to stay healthy while working your...

trying to make a change

It seems that the past 3 years have been downhill for me with one badluck hit after another. I'm not trying to get sympathy and i'm certainly not feeling sorry for myself because the way I see it is that these things happen for a reason and there are people who are much worse than I am. I am thankfu...

In the waiting room a bunch of people which appeared to be gang. walking around laughing and having a good tim...

a pure soul

I took my kayak out today. it's one of the moment by myself where thoughts just seem to come out from no place. I used to compete in endurance races, but stopped when money became a shortage. I miss them, but now older I think back to what is pure. I feel like now, i want to kayak, or mtn bike only ...

kayaking for the soul

I love kayaking. I can't get enough of it. I love the sound of pushing through water and the feeling of waves moving me up and down. I love the sight of my kayak glidding through flat water, pushing through rough water and slithering through thick fog. I'm also the type of person that sets huge chal...
