Unlocking the Maze of Life

If you are new to this site, welcome!

I truly hope my insights and experiences can benefit you in some way.

I write about a wide range of topics, to be sure, but there is a theme and that is a concept that I strive to achieve. It is about life in a chaotic world in which we all are looking for our little piece of paradise.

I write a lot about dogs–of course, I am a dog trainer. I write about my quest to run the Iditarod in a couple years and what dreams are truly made of.

I write about music. Music is a great love of mine. My iPod has about 6700 songs on in and I am rarely without it. Music functions as a “soundtrack” of my life, providing strong markers that I associate with memories and experiences.

I love pop culture and you will find a lot of references, some of them obscure in my ramblings. I love to draw parallels to the life that we live and the life that we consume through various media.

I write about life. About the balance, realism and rhythms. I try and seek a lesson from every experience and to learn from our great teachers.

So how does it help you? Why should you read this stuff?

I believe that we only get one chance to make a difference. I am just hoping that I can share that chance with you.

So, take a look around, comment if you like and let’s start a conversation. There is no telling what we can teach other and what we can gain from sharing. I would love to hear from you!
