30 days at sea time lapse

Not sure why I liked this video so much but the visual analogy it burned in my mind was powerful.  

In life we receive, live or tell stories about experiences. And while the receipt or telling of a story are locked together living the experience varies wildly. A moment that lasts for 15 seconds can take two hours to recount and a 30 day trip like this unfolds in 10 minutes. 


Long and short of it I have a lot of stories and moments that I need to tell. I guess I need to make time to tell them. I guess my fear is will anyone listen. 

The Mechanic

So I went to get a check engine Light looked at during lunch...and the mechanics ate my wallet.  I am about to apply to a technical school and learn how to do this myself. 

Expanding on that thought, I feel like there is a EV mechanic/tuning/service movement that is on the precipice of breaking. If Tesla service got smart that would embrace third party repairs and extend a hand to old school wrenches and blend their knowledge with the coder types that are “building” EVs. 

Runnin’ through the 6


I had the chance to spend some time in Toronto. My fraternity’s regional convention. The city has always been a quick vacation from Detroit and it has always been one of my favorite cities.

Some of my favorite guys got together and had a powerful conversation about real issues. It was like group therapy meets supper club. We’ll definitely have to do it again.


Sometimes the message is simple. 

It’s a great record.

Love the message.

And, for what it’s worth, in a genre that is both lionized and demonized for its hyper/toxic/term of the moment masculinity it does a good job of showing love. Period. 

Let me know what you think.

I’m just a little...particular


Where do I start. 

I am particular. 

I fully admit this about myself.  

But my being particular is probably best for everyone. 

It keeps me from being too involved in people or situations that I know I want to change but desire to remain then same. And I can respect that. Rather than oppose one another I’ve learned to coexist with out engaging or expending too much energy.
