About

What started as a near-desperate creative outlet for a then unemployed, inexorably anxious, and slowly aging child-man in search of meaning, this blog has evolved into the travels and light-hearted musings of a former Manila resident-turned-American who’s now found himself living a semi-decent life in The Netherlands. He may well live out his twilight years in this likely last stop of an up-and-down, over-examined life, but with luck and a few more coin, there’s hope that the end comes with a dramatic, powerful and well-worn whimper.

I have been blogging since 2006 and would love to continue sharing my experiences and to keep dreaming. With the effects of the pandemic and foreseeable personal circumstances, though, this will increasingly be more challenging. Any help you can extend to keep this blog alive would be greatly appreciated!
