The Committee to Ascribe a Naval Origin to Everything Is Now In Session


Give me a wide berth, I’m a loose cannon and three sheets to the wind. Anchors aweigh.

There are three sorts of people; those who are alive, those who are dead, and those who are at sea.

New York and I have decided to see other people- I Love (French)Bread too

 Charles de Gaulle said  "How can you govern a country which has two hundred and forty-six varieties of cheese ?"  but when it comes to bread everyone in France, and even its loyalty  islands like Noumea agree-there’s only one, Baguette, We call it French Bread, but all the bread in Nouvelle-Calédonie is French 


Sure the whiter the bread, the quicker you’re dead, but there is this thing called the French Paradox-basically you have a grace period for your entire life where you can drink,eat smoke whatever and whenever you like, and then one day, you die peacefully in your sleep at the age of eighty-to ninety something.  



Pig Farming In The Tropics (Fiji)

The D word-diets are like airplanes- I don't like to be on them-so I have been eating less  and enjoying it more. I have even began eating Ham and Eggs--: a days work for a chicken; a life time commitment for the  pig. Inspired by my recent visit to the island of Dravuni where I really did "Meet My Meat".

Had a  Chocolate Butter-croissants too..

The archipelago located in the South Pacific known as New Caledonia is part of the "confetti" of the French colonial empire. What a great day today.

“I wish I could tell you about the South Pacific. The way it actually was. The endless ocean. The infinite specks of coral we called islands. Coconut palms nodding gracefully toward the ocean. Reefs upon which waves broke into spray, and inner lagoons, lovely beyond description. I wish I could tell you about the sweating jungle, the full moon rising behind the volcanoes, and the waiting. The waiting. The timeless, repetitive waiting.”" Tales of the South Pacific" by James A. Michener


Powder---The Book is better than the movie but a picture is worth a 1000 words.


Me And My Shadow 'coulda had a V8'


Got Wood?

I always talk in Bumper Stickers-Instant gratification takes too long



Tender Boating



 

Escape to Reality

You know, addiction isn't the problem - it's the solution- When all you care about is here, this is a good
  place to be

“Addicted to traveling”  or for that matter “Addicted to all-non working activities” shouldn’t be  a new reason for self-hatred or a diagnosis, rather a pursuit like the arts and entertainment, that permit self-exploration and satisfy your psycho-social needs.  You see, in general, if a pastime is not classy, those who love it are labeled with the Dr Phil-Drew-Oprah Psycho Babble rhetoric of “addict.” Opera and Symphony  aficionados, on the other hand  are “passionate” and "driven".
 Loading the cultural dice in favor of “reality” over fantasy, we get the sense of   adventure beaten out of us when we ask ourselves the most irritating of the question words, “Why?”  Why do I have to live in the New York suburbs,where the weather sucks and the people are rude, and there is nothing to do? Then we just tune in turn  on the TV, and  drop out, watching one of the 1000 channels in a shared hallucination called the superstition of materialism, and fall asleep.

Then you get "The Call" and if you  wake up and answer it,  and you begin the Hero's Journey that Joseph Cambell talks about  in The Power Of Myth, with Bill Moyers, that PBS  video series that's a must for all seekers, and you follow your bliss-in most  cases your bliss follows you.

 I started to travel, as a pastime, on a shoe-string budget, labeled as a drifter, a bum, held in contempt by the  uninformed, and over educated who find themselves   sinking into the everydayness of their lives. And I didn’t care. I just did it anyway. The Calvinists say work is prayer, so is permanent traveling.
In the old days, habits of cultural consumption like listening to jazz music all day and night were considered passions, or forever going to the movies or “The Theatre”, allowing   us to create new personalities and use them to fulfill unmet psychological needs. Come to think of it, I think I have an internet addiction too! Awesome.
