    shoes in Havana – #aSimpleStory

    Monday, January 25, 2016

    #aSimpleStory The very first day in Cuba my feet led me to a concrete plaza. Here dozens of children and a handful of adults played soccer. They divided the plaza into 8 courts, the park benches being the landmarks. The goals would be sticks and trees would be VIP seating. I watched as each competitor shared #SimpleJoys into the moonlight, connected to each save and each goal as though it was the World Cup. As I sit on the floor of this stadium after a…

    Your Thanksgiving Task

    Wednesday, December 2, 2015

    Dear Thanksgiving, I’d like to start this day by saying thank you for reminding me that normal is not defined. Actually, most families are not picturesque but hilariously maligned. Oh the T-Day memories that fill my mind… They begin with family, friends and food… But quickly race back to my sister and her teenage mood. At Grammy’s house, where it was warm as can be…but not because of the wood fire but the heavy sweater our Mom made me rock over my 76ers throwback tee….

    A Simple Step Changed My Life

    Thursday, November 12, 2015

    Am proud to announce that i’ll be contributing to the Huffington Post on a more regular basis and wanted to share this article with you all. A Simple Step Changed My Life “Roll over, c’mon. You can do it.” “Oh there you go, one foot, then the next…keep coming” “Slow down, you’re going too fast.” Those three sentences, said by countless parents, carry a beauty that is indescribable. The joy, pride and upcoming panic occurs all at once as your child rolls all the way…

a morning run, #aSimpleStory in Cuba

They say that Cubans always make music. Whether it is in late night conversation, on the street during the work day or in the morning when the roosters and horses awake there are sounds. From Havana to Vinales and Cienfuegos to the cafe where i write this, there is music. A wild harmony that brings a smile along with a confusing political culture, street soccer matches and a wild ocean Cuba eventually makes amazing sense. So as this adventure comes to her close i wanted…

Psalm travel

a travelers note

Came across a sacred Pslam today and legend says it was written for those who travel far to achieve victory. And to me, victory is in the seeking. a sacred Psalm of those who travel far to achieve; ‘A thousand fall at your side, and ten thousand to your right, But you will never be touched. No evil will befall you, no curse will fall upon your tent; your angels will be given orders regarding you, to protect you along your every way. Trample the…

Salsa

Salsa in Vinales

When one thinks of #Salsa dancing it is like #SigningDay, when you think you can start as freshman. When one takes a #SalsaLesson it is like a fall scrimmage against the 3s when you ball out and tell your boys you should start. When one goes #Salsa dancing under the #stars of #Cuba it is like starting against a team full of Pac-12 #AllAmericans. So yea, went #Salsa dancing and it was hilarious. Taking lessons in #LA after #SigningDay – who’s in? 😜🇨🇺❤️🏈 #HowGreatIsBall #HowGreatIsSalsa…

Baseball Havana

Oh to be 11 again

To be 11 again. Yup, that was today on the diamond in Vinales. What began as a feeble attempt to create epic photos of this old baseball stadium turned into a game of one vs one. Now, if you are a jock you’ve had many of these games in your childhood. We basically pretend we are playing in a critical game in front of a packed house and of course, every critical pitch, at bat, jump shot or free throw is done by us. And…

No money, No bank, No things. Perfect.

So we went for a walk. Among the tobacco leaves, bananas, oranges and random fruits we went. Picking our way through lunch and an early dinner. Our guide was the magical Yoly (yes, the irony of her name is not lost here). She had greeted my newfound bus friend and I at the station and her energy was obvious–she is a local who has a heart larger than the island we were lucky to be on. After hearing that my US bank (BOA) had ‘restrictions’…

Cuba: a bumpy bus ride

We go to these places on trips, deep thoughts that is so far out from what we can think of as everyday, normal life. In Cuba it is amplified as there is minimal Internet, minimal outside communication. For someone in their early to mid 30s that is a good and bad thing. Of course there is the overall thought of societal pressures and marriage, kids, etc but can quite easily move past that. The difficult part is when you still maintain a wonderlust spirit. I…

#aSimpleStory – the next adventure in Cuba

I am convinced about a few things in life; – Every college football team should play 9 conference games and a championship game. – Christian McCaffrey should have won the Heisman in 2015. – Traveling is one of life’s greatest gifts. I’m also convinced that we all have an amazing story in this life, and that we should share it. So on this adventure in Cuba i hope to share the stories that i come across along this journey. Am unsure of what they will…

Unexplainable but let’s try

Some things in life have a reason.  Why we enjoy PB&J may be because we grew up having it every day. Why we love music may be because our mother sang to us each night. Why we adore sports may be due to the childhood friends we had. But traveling, for me, is unexplainable.  Sure our Mom grew up in another country and our Dad is as well read as Hemmingway–so on the surface it is understandable why the urge to seek is there. And…
