How are you?

Don’t just say “Fine thank you!” with glazed eyes as drool accumulates at the corner of your mouth. Leave that together with comments about the weather for the banality of the office.

How are you REALLY?

What’s awesome about your life right now?

What’s troubling you?

Which of your many interests is your current obsession?

What challenges could you be grateful for so that they become transformed into the springboard that sends you off towards where you want to go in life?


What adventures have you had?

How about that amazing ginormous constant nuclear explosion in the sky that’s so big you can feel the heat of it on your face from 150 million kilometers away?

Everything comes back to being about the weather eventually. Sorry about that.

It’s hard to believe my last blog post was over four years ago. Back in November 2010 I felt I had reached the point where I had expressed most of what I had to say. I was reading many other health related blogs written by experts in various fields of science and began to feel they were far more qualified than I to write about such things. Writing more seemed somewhat redundant.

Except stuff happens. Life happens. I’ve finished a masters degree, married my beautiful wife, became a Dad, embarked on a snowshoeing adventure, started the long process of learning how to sail, became obsessed with rock climbing, worked in an international consulting firm for nearly four years, been successful by all the meaningless standards of middle class measurement, and am now in the throes of relocating my family to where I want to be, while seeking a career change for the fourth time.

I hope you’ll join me once again as I share and reflect on the experiences of my life.

It has been four years. Life has happened. And I’ve got a few things to say about it.
