It’s hard to write about oneself. I love to write about other people and interesting places. Like exploring the backwoods of Vancouver Island, discovering abandoned mineshafts, camping in the Gulf Islands, or Salmon fishing out of a canoe.
When you were 29, did you go back to high school as a student and spend a year side by side with teenagers? I did, and loved it. I traveled with them to Communist Russia in 1986, had too much Vodka in a Russian establishment and was given a medal off a Russian Soldier’s uniform.
I have skied Whistler, snorkelled with a big white in Hawaii, volunteered at an orphanage in Baja Mexico, and soaked in natural hot springs in Alaska. It seems that whenever I am faced with adventure and mystery, my mind carries me away on a sea of inquisitiveness and I have to travel down just one more road, see around one more bend, or go over just one more hill. However, ask me to write about me.
I am what I write.
