A Never Ending Journey

31 Jan

For I wish there was more for me to say.

My Journey seems but a fragment of a dream now.
Yet still I am reminded everyday how things have changed.

Nice Day in the City By the Bay

20 Jul

I woke this morning, to the sunshine of the East Bay sun glistening in my face.
Deciding that the weather was too nice to pass up, I started my day with a walk around the block with a furry little animal that now inhabits my home in Berkeley.
After a quick stroll around the block I dropped him off and decided to proceed the rest of the day on foot. Strolling around, enjoying the day of sunshine and cool breeze.

As I walked, I stumbled upon a small store that caught my eye. As I walked in, I was struck my a familiar smell. As I walked around I realized the sounds around me, were of a place I once had once lived.

As I grabbed a quick drink the lady looked at me with a smile, and I quickly replied with a “sawatdee krop”.
She looked at me with confusion, yet happiness, as she replied in a similar fashion.
We went along and continued the transaction in the language I have longed to use, ever since my return to America.

We said our farewells, and I continued on with my day with feeling like no other.

As I walked on, I felt my stomach growl with the desire of a good meal. As I continued, I ran into the place my heart most desired.

Walking in, I already knew what I wanted and needed. No menu needed, as I knew the kitchen would cook to my stomach’s desire.

It came out, and I was instantly taken back to a time and a place that I had not been to in far too long.
It smelled of Thai spices and basil, and tasted like heaven.

I couldn’t help but throw an egg on it, as I knew it would only make things that much better.

And as I began my meal, the waitress brought out my 4 compadres, that made me realize I was truly back in Bangkok.

The spicy taste of the chilis, along with the sweet Thai Basil, created a medley of flavors that had me just wanting more..

With every bite I was taken back to times with old friends. Sitting along the streets of Bangkok, enjoying a meal with one another, laughing over the memories of nights past.
Of times with my fellow Evergreen students, and of course the boys from 1208.

I said my farewells in the language I learned while abroad and headed to a local coffee shop to unwind.

After a nice relaxing day, it feels nice enjoy the sweet effects of caffeine while writing of my day.

A nice day of new memories and old.
Of past and present.
With no idea of the future.

Along The Ho Chi Minh

19 May

One morning four adventurous men woke up and decided that today, was going to be different.
That they would pack their bags and all reservations would be left behind.

It was their time to explore the world.

And thats just what they did.

We did went places no one dare to explore,
and came out victorious.

Things that will never be forgotten,
and times we will always dwell on.

There a world out there waiting.

The choice is yours, and
our answer was always yes.

After Finals

8 May

After a semester of nothing but fun in Bangkok, we headed out to the islands to enjoy our last weeks abroad.



It seemed like we were approaching the end.
Yet now I realize it was only the beginning.

We’ll meet again.
Don’t know where.
Don’t know when.

Facebook

3 May

Just a little thing I found browsing the Internet that I felt was just, “oh so true”.

Use this as a little motivation to get up and live your life rather than worrying about what everyone else thinks of you.

Sincerely,

The Caveman

Night Out in the City

17 Apr

Some nights are just better expressed in a photograph.

The Breakfast Club

9 Apr

They met once, and it changed their lives forever.

Through the Woods

1 Apr

And to the Ocean I went.

One minute I was sitting amongst the trees, the next I was watching the surf.

No where is like California.

20120331-174221.jpg

Days spent alone in nature.
Unforgettable and much needed.

Get out

31 Mar

It’s a beautiful day here in California

What better way to enjoy it.

Riding through the California Redwoods is an unexplainable feeling.

If only my comrades from Vietnam could be accompanying me.
The Ritz Angels
You are out of sight, but never out of mind.

Sometimes you just have to get up, go out into nature to realize how beautiful the world around you is.
