Sometimes…

Sometimes in these troubled times I’m just compelled to jump on the subway and hop over to my own private Pirates adventure… (Seriously, I was alone with the pirates. It was magical and surreal.)

A Heavy Price?

Yes, I DO live in China. Sometimes, running freely hither and yonder, prancing around Disneyland, eating at wonderfully cozy vegan cafes, drinking tea in little tea shops, it’s easy to forget we are living within a non-democratic society (choosing my language carefully there). Then, as I’m heading out of my apartment on this beautiful day…

21 Days: COMPLETED!

Quarantine Day 21: Quarantine COMPLETED! Had to do 2 Covid tests since departing hotel one week ago. Final one was this morning. I ran to the local hospital where there’s a testing trailer set up out front. So, since departing Kentucky on November 21st, I’ve been tested 7 times: Once in Renton, Washington at a…

The Triumphant Return

November 25th, Thanksgiving Day Quarantine, Day I Sometimes, 1 minute changes the course of your life. After all this—674 pandemic days away—Operation Triumphant Return begins bearing fruit. My girlfriend is no longer 8,500 miles away.Now, it’s more like 8-10. Yet, the separation continues for two additional weeks. Much, much more to come. Patience, Daniel-san. Patience.

America’s Love Affair With COVID

“America’s Love Affair With COVID” In the 16 days it took the USA to go from 4 to 5 million cases of COVID, we could have been almost 1/3 of the way to nearly complete containment of the virus. 16 days x 3= 48 IF we truly wanted to save lives, travel freely again (yes,…

Florida Must Close NOW

“Florida Must Close NOW” Here it is, folks…the straight, hard truth. The truth you will not hear from our AWOL federal government (except for Dr. Fauci & his team) and Florida’s recklessly, criminally negligent governor (with a small “g”). I was living in China when the Covid-19 pandemic was still a localized epidemic; then nearly…

How Has YOUR Life Changed During the Pandemic?

I want to hear from YOU. How has YOUR life changed during the pandemic? Here’s a quick rundown for me: ~Firstly, I want to honor those lives lost. I am consistently shocked by the deaths here in the United States. At least 40,000 lives lost as of today. By the fact that at least 3…

If I’m Going to Self Isolate, I’m Going to Do it Right

These are tragic times for many. I’m praying more. Blessed to be healthy, but drifting in and out of hard times, prevented from returning to China for who knows how long. Haven’t seen my girlfriend in nearly 3 months. I cannot risk going home and infecting Mom. BUT, alas, there is hope for me yet….
