to really see a sunset

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”

Rabindranath Tagore

Many people take sunsets for granted. Sometimes those of us that live near the water are the same way. Because we live on the coast we say “I see sunset’s all the time...” The question becomes do you really see the sunset. Are you just going through the motion of a sunset to say that you have seen one, or do you envelope yourself in the moment? Do you feel the energy vibrating around you as the sun sets for another day? Do you breath in the colors that reflect on to your eye? Have you truly appreciated a sunset?

I wasn’t sure if I was going to make it yesterday. I went to the gym, sent off some proposals, filled out some expense reports and was rushing. I felt, as i do everyday, when i have the opportunity to check out a sunset, that it is a religious experience. It is as if it may be the last sunset I ever see. I soak up every moment and embellish it. It is truly an experience which i believe should be done often or as often as possible much like eating dinner or having breakfast.

I am blessed for the opportunity of being able to see such amazing sunsets. I never take them for granted and really live in the moment of a sunset. I remember as a child playing on this same beach thinking, “wow this is cool seeing this sunset”, but never really living in the moment of it. How could I, I was young and had no concept of time. My concept of time is here and now. Live in love and give thanks daily for the amazing people that have come into your lives and never take them for granted. If you haven’t picked up the phone and called that person in a while, put your pride in your back pocket and call them. Life is too short to hate and have hatred in your heart.

Until next time....

Feels like a throat punch to my heart

So, I thought today was going to be just another Sunday of lounging around and netflixing.  I don't think I have ever been so wrong in my life.  To start with, Facebook reminded me of my memories.  I happened to click on a friends link and decided to follow another link to my very first girlfriends sisters page.  Its random how I got there, but I blame facebook.

To my shock, I saw that her sister had passed on the 22nd of November.  I was shocked because I knew that she wasn't that old.  I reached out to an old mutual acquaintance and found out it was pretty sudden and unexpected.  That had me in some kinda mood.  Because of that, I began to text and email friends and check in and make sure then were okay.

I got a text message from a close colleague I used to work with at a previous job.

Beck: "whats shakin CB"
Me: "Not much just wanted to say hello.  Had a wake up call today.  Found out first girlfriends sister just passed away.  So sad...she was young"

Screw back up plans

Yes I said it.  Yes I have had quite a few unsuccessful ventures and I have recently started reading blogs that suggest backup plans.  I don't agree and I will tell you why.

When you have a back up plan you have an "oh shit that didn't work and I have to do something about it". Its like whatever it is going on in your life is going to fail or stop being at some point. Newsflash: You are correct!  NOTHING lasts forever. Your job, your marriage, your income stream, your family and most certainly not your startup or your job.  For those of you wishing to go back to the old days, its not going to happen.  The age of chivalry is dying and the startup that you create will be dead within 10-15 years.  We don't live in our parents or grandparents economy. Hell the way we communicate is changing. See example below and try and decipher what I am saying to you


Did you figure it out yet.  If so, please pat yourself …

Just a friendly update on me :-)

Hey everyone

Just wanted to give an update. You may remember that I said I was going to be coming back to California, well it is official.  I am heading down May 1. I will most likely take the train and stop in Napa to visit my cousin Stephen Bordes at his winery for a day or two.  From there, I will catch a train to San diego.

I am currently looking for work and open to any positions that may be available, I just ask that you don't hold it against me because I have a masters degree.  I have seen many companies shy away from hiring me because I have a Masters Degree.  I am honestly looking to get off my feet and find a base of operation. My home is California and I know that now.  I am native and the air, soil and water are in my bones.

I am looking to establish which means I will need to find a place to live (that I pay for monthly), maybe even get a car (down the road) for now I know that I will have to use the bus and I am okay with that. I am nervous as hell about this move …
