About Me


I cycle a hundred smiles per hour on my bike, up or down hill, always moving forward through the ephemeral nature of pain/pleasure, sorrow/delight, fear/contentment, abiding in a gentle state of equanimity. My bicycle is not really a bike at all. Its a ship, and not just any ship. Her name is Lalita Estrella, and she's guiding me across latitudes like a guiding star all the way to Ecuador. My first bike ride 16 years ago around the island of Oahu, Hawaii was with a great friend who has since earned his wings, and a Purple Heart Medal. I dedicate this ride to him. I am indebted and incredibly grateful for any company and shelter along the way. Peace


spiritual journey. where am i? not exactly sure, just floating through space like everyone else! what time is it? there is only one time: now
