Unpredict Your Journey #UHM19

All There Ever is to Do

What if the answer has always been right under our noses? What if life was extremely simple and innocently we’ve imagined it to be much more challenging than it is? What if all there ever is to do is: Follow our instinct, aim ourselves…

Train #3

While on my way to an appointment in Switzerland I was in the mix of the hustle and bustle of a large train station. Usually I use Google to find my way around, but on that morning Google Maps wasn’t working. Then the strangest thing happened:…

The Universal Language

While riding a bus through a remote island in the Aegean see, I drifted away on my own island of thoughts. The seas of a language I did not know were lapping up on the coastline of my awareness like gentle waves on a faraway shore. Subdued by…

Shaking Hands with a Volcano

I shook hands with a volcano today. I’ve been watching her from afar and imagining what she might be like: Wondering if she had rivers of lava frozen in time; if her peaks were smooth or jagged; if she had deep pits with hardened lava in the…
Santorini

The Silence where Everything Is

A friend suggested I go to Santorini. He said there is beauty... and a silence there like the instant after a thunder clap. This morning I drove to the top of the tallest hill on the island and just as I was leaving found a small trail...…

Zipping Along

A few weeks ago I went on an awesome treetop adventure course, climbing, tightrope walking, and zip-lining more than sixty feet off the ground. To make it all the way through the course without falling required a combination of balance, strength…

The Raven, the Messenger, and the Grand Misunderstanding

The Raven On a crisp morning deep in the White Mountain Wilderness of New Mexico, I stepped from my warm trailer in to the silent stillness of a brand new day. I was one of only a handful of people for miles and miles. Within seconds of stepping…

Roxann: My Angel Next Door

The Day I Knocked on a Neighbor’s Door and Cried I was in Texas… Sitting alone in my Airstream trailer, feeling very low, and wondering why I chose to leave my friends and family and sell almost all of my belongings to wander the world…
Everywhere and NowHere Coddiwomple Now

Everywhere and NowHere

Lately when asked where home is, I generally respond “Everywhere and nowhere.”  With my nomadic lifestyle this has rung true, but being from “nowhere” hasn’t felt fully spot-on.  Just last week a friend showed me how the word nowhere…
Be the flow

Be the Flow

For the past year I have been on the journey of a lifetime, but not in the way most assume. A year ago I decided to sell almost everything I owned, end my career as a firefighter/paramedic, and set off on my own to coddiwomple and wander the…

Hitchiking Trust

Hitchhiking and a Different Take on Trust

As I write this I am sitting in the backseat of a Toyota listening to the Beatles with three Slovenians who I don’t know. I am hitchhiking! The couple in the front told me their names, but I just nodded and smiled. Don, a fellow hitchhiker,…

UNPredict Your Journey

This morning on a flight to London I realized the last time I flew over the Atlantic was in 1999. How things have changed! To fund that trip I worked for the Department of Environmental Protection researching and writing short “bios”…

Going Home

This week I am in Los Angeles with an outstanding group of coaches from around the world. We are here together seeing, sharing, experiencing, and learning about deepening our understanding and intensifying impact. The more meaningful our coaching…

An Ordinary Hike to an Extraordinary View

While on this Grand Adventure I have met so many people that have become like family, although there have been many times where I felt very alone. In just three short months I have “seen” so much- with my eyes and with my heart. Right now…

Connection: Bridging the Gap Between Misunderstanding and Love

If you haven’t visited Venice Beach, California- it’s a special place. Along the Venice Boardwalk there are many street vendors and most of them are “Home Free.” Home free being what most would call “homeless.” While the residents…

New Beginnings

Tomorrow, Thursday November 30th, I shift into a new way of living: Life untethered, living on the road full-time in my Airstream trailer. 95% of the time I am very excited and 5% of the time I wonder what the heck I am doing. The truth…
