I'm Going Back to Cali...

After a well needed five weeks of reconnecting with my daughters and wife, I'm heading back to Oakland to continue to dream. It was nice traveling thought Texas eating, sleeping, and laughing as a family once again; despite the crazy continuous rain shower everyday for three weeks. At times it felt like my own version of National Lampoons Vacation...

As I've stated in previous posts over the semester, this journey still seems a bit surreal for me. Six months ago I took the 43 hour train ride here (inspired by Walt's preferred traveling method), leaving behind a somewhat decent life, in exchange for adventure. I had grown tired of just working for the sake of providing for my family and needed something more to call my life. Many of my friends and family belied I was going through a form of "mid-life crisis", I likened it to a life re-examined. I guess the fact I began to prefer spending my days off trekking through the woods and listening to to world that lives between wind and silence; was what made me realize that there's more I could be doing with my life.

I always wanted to live in San Francisco since the days of watching Full House as a young boy growing up in Stamford Connecticut. I still find myself standing and looking upon the skyline of San Francisco from various points throughout the Bay. It's just so great to be here and take advantage of the opportunities of creating a better life for my family. Proof that life long dreams can become reality...
