New Blog

The past year has been an incredible journey. So much has happened it felt like I got 5 years worth of experience all compressed, squished and jammed into one. Not only did I do more things and had more things done to me, I felt more. I felt more alive than ever before. It is as though I took a trip to explore the range and depth of emotions: anger to frustration, exhilaration and love, sadness yet joy. But those emotions also came with crystal clear realizations of life.

Proust once wrote,
We don't receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us.
For the first time, I think I'm beginning to discover wisdom. It is as if I woke up one day and started to understand life. And I believe that with understanding, mastery is sure to follow.

Unfortunately the more I did, the less I wrote. Today I decided it was time to start a brand new blog. Who knows when the journey might end, or change, or become incomprehensible again. I can't promise everything I write will be enlightening or brilliant or even interesting, but at least there will be some kind of public record of me waking up daily in this beautiful city by the bay and the metaphorical awakening that I'm only beginning to realize.
