About Me


Trying/failing/growing to live in the Present.


Grew up in Maine, on the southern coast. I like Maine a lot, all the seasons are displayed. Did school for a year in Portland, stopped and worked outside, saw the winter and went to Kaua'i and worked with some friuts and vegis. Went back to Maine and worked outside in the summer, then flew to Pisa. Now I be traveling Europe.


You can't have expectations; you can't control the future. You just gotta float.
