The Road to Somewhere

It may come as a surprise to some of you [it will not come as a surprise to anyone], but I have always been a risk-taker. I live life on the edge – because the view is always better from the edge, despite it being a little more dangerous.

So anyone that knows me knows...

So … I’m homeless.

I recently visited my family in Gulfport, Mississippi (where I grew up) and a reality hit me: I began to realize that I don’t really consider that place to be my home anymore.

I mean, I moved away from Mississippi to the Baton Rouge, La., area 10 years...

I haven’t had a new blog entry in quite a while [thanks, Capt. Obvious].


I tend to have great ideas and not actually go through with them. To me, that’s my biggest weakness – I’m not a finisher.

I have about four books I have opened and started reading, but haven’t fini...

It’s been nearly a whole week since my last day of work, and things have more than set in for me. I have come to the realization that I don’t have to go to work anymore (except on weekends – I have a job on weekends).

That is a liberating realization, until reality stri...

I’m confused. Well, my body is … and my brain.

I woke up early this morning, glanced around my dark bedroom and found the red numbers that represent the time on a nearby dresser.


Then, without thinking, I reached down to the floor near my bed and checked my cell pho...

I’ve become a master of the “almost.”

Everyone knows life comes with plenty of disappointments; it’s absolutely cliché, but it really stings when you come so close to something only to be told “you’re not the guy.”

And for that to happen so many times to one person – it’...

I quit my job.


You probably knew that already though.

I’ve gotten a few messages after posting my blog opener. Messages from friends who give me kudos, or to tell me they understand how I felt, or to ask me what my plans are.

First of all – and I felt this way with my ne...

Like many people, I am on a journey.

A journey to find my purpose; to find where I belong.

I do not know where this journey will lead me, but I’m determ...
