It has been quite a while since I posted here. Too many experiences have passed to not share. Jobs have come and gone. My surroundings have changed for the better and sadly; far too many friends and acquaintances have left this life. One passing that will not be forgotten by me is that of Anthony Bourdain. I have said countless times that he had the ultimate job, one that I envied. Travel, eat, drink and share the experiences with others in a truly intimate way that only he could. Tony passed just weeks ago and his death was a huge surprise for many but maybe not for those who were close to him. Either way, his life was cut way too short, in a most tragic way that might have been prevented. With our nanosecond news cycle these days, his life was celebrated for a week or so, then on to the news of the day. (Don’t even get me started on THAT shit).
I felt really sad and started to think about how full a life Tony must have had, traveling, cooking, eating and sharing his particularly snarky point of view. Then, I started to think of my own life and my own mortality.Kind of a scary, morbid thought process for me but then something came over me………a sense of obligation, a sense of restlessness, which for me is, good. I began to remind myself that I have a great forum in which to share the same kind of experiences as Tony did.
Fear, lack of experience, lack of time, lack of money; all bullshit reasons.
So, that said. I’m going to start living the life I have always imagined AND sharing it with all of YOU. It is an honor for me to share my experiences with you.
