California In My Mind

dsc_0043

I have been feeling itchy feet the past couple of weeks.

Even though I am currently traveling I feel like it is not

far enough, interesting enough, good enough.

I miss California today. It is there where I can have

good Mexican food for breakfast and pick up sushi, good,

good sushi at the grocery store and then later hit the Pho

joint for dinner.

I am in a part of the country where the flavors and the traditions

are supposed to be great but I still find the food wanting.

Hot, Spicy regardless is no great achievement. (sorry)

While we have found great people in our travels food is still

below what I have found in rural areas of Mexico, Guatemala

OR Belize. Traveling through New Mexico has been challenging

for my food writing. While I have tried many a restaurant that

the locals recommend I have found ONE item I truly liked.

I am sure it is ME where the problem is and all the food is

“just amazing.”

Gang if you have a chance to get out-of-town DO IT.

Step outside and see what you can find. What you have been missing.

It is always a good thing to go out searching and exploring.

Even bad experiences are worth it in the big scheme of things.

And while you are out there keep your eyes open and see if

you can find someone to help.

Give a hand, Give a coin, Give someone

a bite to eat. Don’t wait to be asked.

I am breaking up with the cold.

178I am so very tired of the cold.

I just can not wait for the days of sun

and sand at the beach.

Mean time I am getting ready by

trying to keep my body ready.

Are you ready for the beach? shorts,

tank tops and the like?

I just want to walk on the beach.

I could not care less about other things.

Gang get ready for fun on the sun.

Why not? Why not be positive.

Why not go the extra mile for someone else.

Why not do just a little more.

Why not expect more from yourself.

Why not remember that we live in this

the greatest country in the world.

Why not dream big.

Why not accomplish big.

So I ask you Why not?

and Why not you?

On Goals, Dreams, and Miles.

Come And Enjoy The Water!

Recently we have talked about goal setting.

Have you added some travel to your goals??

In our planning calendar I have been told

there is a cruise to Mexico. There is a trip

to Texas (Austin for some big to do SXSW)

Hell I would have gone for the BBQ at Franklin

BBQ and would have enjoyed waiting in line.

Also the possibility of spending some time

in Seattle (Comme to Papa Clam Chowder)

I am looking forward to many great walks

and maybe a few good pictures. The one that

I am featuring on this blog was taken at

Little Corona in Corona Del Mar, CA

One of the most amazing places I have

been to.

I guess what I am trying to say is: Get after it

Yes we want to lose the weight but we have

a life to live as well.

Gang I hope your plans and goals are solid

and important enough for you to have put

them on paper and ever-present.

Thinking Of Nassau.

DSCN6260

This picture was taken in Nassau

on my last trip there. Today my toes

feel frozen and I find myself  wishing

with all my heart I was there.

I am sure my wife will get a kick from

this pic. I had been there before but she

had not and she had an amazing time.

We are at a time of the year when many

make goals and plans and me being one

that has traveled extensively have one

humble piece of advice for you all.

Put it in your plans. Make it a goal

and get some miles behind you and

some stamps on your passport.

This are memories that remain

and it is all worth it.

I wish I was feeling the breeze in

San Juan. Feeling the sun in Barbados.

Having a beer in Charleston. Eating

Sea Ray in Puerto Penasco or ceviche in

Mazatlan. Notice the pattern??? Warm,

very warm places.

Anyway gang…. Get after it.

Plan some travel and enjoy.

Please, please share some pics

with us all.

Personal Change.

2dd73e9468bbb0fab3b59644557214f1

As we plan our goals for the year 2018

let us not forget that the battle IS NOT

to be better than others but to be a better

version of our previous selves from yesterdays.

The true battle if to figure out our weak areas.

Finding where the work is most needed is

a triumph in and by itself.

Winning is and should be about winning over

our weak and flawed selves. There is where

lasting change and triumphs lay.

I wish you all the success possible as this year

ends and the new year starts.

Let us be better every day.
