Hiking the Cliffs of San Francisco

Today my friends and I hiked the cliffs of San Francisco. We took a short hike then had a picnic on a large landing spot along the California coastal trail. We explored Fort Cronkhite and Rodeo Beach. In terms of natural splendor so close to the City, this place is unsurpassed. There’s lots of WWII […]

A few years ago I wrote about the zombie invasion of the cubicle. Basically the premise is people stumble through the day, glassy eyed, in sugar induced comas doing […]

My friend Kevin and I explored Oakland yesterday sharing dating stories, walking my dog Max and discussing life’s adventures. I considered what it was like to fall in love for the first time.

My Heart is in Sydney for Mardi Gras

Happy Mardi Gras to the LGBT Community of Sydney, Australia. It’s your Christmas. Go hard. Have fun. Rehydrate! The truth is this…when it all boils down to it, we’re meant to love one another, not judge one another.
