I’m not a crier. It’s seldom the news makes me cry. I remember being a mess after 227,000 perished in the Indian Ocean Tsunami, for instance.

But, today, I’ve cried several times, the cause being far closer to home. Just 335 kilometres from…


Colin Kaepernick is the new face of Nike’s 30th-anniversary “Just Do It” campaign. Cue outrage and applause. All across America, red-faced blowhards are spewing venom while chucking their Nike kicks onto barbecues. But, at Nike HQ’s just outside Portland, I’m betting all that burnt rubber smells like victory.

The timing…


Waking here often comes with a sense of unease, a forgetting of what I’ve dreamt about, but an awareness that it was none too pleasant.

Explaining an unsettled, disruptive mood cast upon a morning is a challenge for the best of writers, so I fumble in trying to do so.


Bourdain is dead. I’m devastated.

There is no death closer to home for me. For some it was Robin Williams that left them gasping, but this is the one by which all others will measure.

If you’re new to me, I’ve been travelling the world alone for nearly three years…


Hi! New here? Some background: In October, 2015, I began the adventure of a lifetime, five years of nomad life. Today, I’m nearly half-through that adventure. After 18 countries and too many cities to count, I’ve been having what I call a mid-nomad crisis, taking stock of it all. For…


The trouble with Donald Trump’s presidency is that it makes the notion of other celebrities being Leader of the Free World a joke. …


As the New Year looms, I’m trying to reconnect with the headspace and wherewithal that made my dreams come true in 2015.

The goal was to become a nomad and travel the world while working remotely for five years. Very deus ex machina, how it unfolded. I got exactly the…


Manufactured outrage is among the most insidious problems in today’s media.

All it takes is one kneejerk smartphone user with an off-the-cuff reaction to a situation they see but do not understand, railing against the powers that be while shouting down a fury upon the supposed transgressors.

The internets cry…


Irony. Americans, in seeking change from an economy leaving behind, decided to “evict the elites” and elect an “outsider.”

But the outsider they chose represents everything that should offend them. …


[Edit: I wrote this when cops got shot in Dallas. Two years later, nothing’s changed — just more blood on the sidewalk. So, I replaced a few words, a few names, and presto, it’s just as relevant today as it was then.]

“Pray for Parkland.”

There are countless tweets floating…
