Shiver Me Timbers

I feel like a pirate. Not one with a peg leg or an eye patch.  One that lives in a digital age full of  information flying at you like cannonballs. Between celebrity gossip, mommy blogs, adventure reports, and all the other swashbucklers out there trying to share information with the world, it seems like we are always under siege.  Sometimes it is better to just take over an existing ship instead of sinking it. I am officially commandeering this platform today. is my wife’s blog that she started while we spent a summer in Hawaii. It has had its highs and lows just like all of us but now it is turning over a new leaf. Setting out for the open seas. And I will be it’s captain. Don’t worry I kept Becky  on board to be the fair maiden and contribute. Together I hope we reach new locations and share them with all who want to join. Here is my creed.

All I live for is now
All I stand for is where and how
All I wish for are magic moments
As I sail through change
My resolve remains the same
What I chose are magic moments
Because ships are safe in the harbour
But that is not what ships are made for
The mind could stretch much further
But it seems that is not what our minds are trained for
We call for random order
You can’t control Mother nature’s daughter
Ships are safe in the harbour
But that is not what ships are built for
The witch hunter roams
The scary thing is that he’s not alone
He’s trying to down my magic moments
As we sail through change
Ride the wind of a silent rage
And sing laments of magic moments

The poem has a different meaning for all of us. Our decisions and focus in life are governed by our current position.Regardless of where you are you should always ask yourself; Am I having magic moments? I love to share my thoughts and philosophies  because most of them come as shots of personal inspiration during the magic moments. Often while I am in a special place that is not a safe harbor.  They appear during the pursuit of a passion or at the realization of defeat. They appear when all the synapses are connecting or when you find yourself in over your head.  They happen all the time and the important thing is that we recognize them and act on them.

Moving forward from this point I am using this blog to unload my magic moments with the world. I want everyone to know what life is like outside of the harbor. Expect to see me spew something once a week for you to devour, reject or point and laugh at.

It will be driven by my priorities in this life

– Family

– Outdoor adventures

– Pursuing passions

– Helping those in need

– Becoming a better member of the international family that lives on this earth.

– General observations of what we call “modern day society”

Hopefully all will be entertaining and insightful.  Come follow me and take what you want. Laugh, ponder, enjoy. You will hopefully see my writing improve and join me in sharing what makes us all tick.
