Goodbye 2021
Goodbye 2021

On the last sunset, on the last day of the year, I am saying goodbye to 2021, one of the worst years for me. I learned a lot of lessons this year that I won’t mention. A big year of growth for me. Big risks, big mistakes, big lessons. No regrets. Nothing was lost because […]

Gaunt Statues of the Sonoran Desert
Gaunt Statues of the Sonoran Desert

“They stood alone and heralded the dawn;Gaunt shadowsEtched upon a rimThat tore the jagged edge of day. They stood like phantoms grim,Within a world alone,Upon a lonely way. With muzzles pointed toward the stars now dimIn dawn’s first undertone,They filled the sleeping skyWith eerie wails. Each dismal cryCame drifting on the winds, Borne through the […]

A Hike through Mormon Rocks
A Hike through Mormon Rocks

As a kid, I would often stare out the window, admiring the vast landscape. Often we’d be driving on Highway 138 through the Cajon Pass and I would see these amazing rocks jetting out of the earth. Pocketed with holes, I would imagine Native Americans hiding pottery and other treasures in the thousands of possible […]

Watapana, Arikok National Park, Aruba

High up for sunrise in Arikok National Park, Aruba. This life-sized bonsai bush is the native Watapana. Thanks to the strong and always present trade winds, the watapana trees on the island all grow pointing the same direction. For this same reason, the hotels on the island are built along the leeward coast where the […]
