I miss 4 Pines

Nails,???, Special Ed, and Nature Boy! I was told not to stay at the 4 Pines Hostel in Catawba, VA. What a huge mistake that would have been! These are just 4 of the countless number of friends that I have made while walking the Appalachian Trail. The??? girl, was injured, and because I had […]

Back in Cape Town

Movie making. Surfing culture. Real African Art. Sensory candy. Yes. I’m back in Cape Town for about 3 weeks. I’m trying to enjoy myself. Last trip brought the true meaning of gun violence into my life. If you follow me, you know that I was held up at gunpoint last year. It never leaves you. […]

Easton? Yip!

That’s my car parked in front of our new home! Easton. 4th Street. It’s an old brownstone built around the turn of the last century. It started as a Chinese restaurant, but now contains 4 beautifully constructed flats, of which one is now ours! I’m having a noodle lunch; feeling very Millennial. Oh no! Chop […]
