Exploring the Nature and Experience of Life

  • Provoking Thoughts on “Science”

    December 17, 2020 by

     Here are some of my thoughts on science. Before I start, I think it’s relevant to mention I have a Bachelor of Science degree in kinesiology and a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree – collectively 7 years of secondary education in a science. Ok, so my thoughts… Science is simply the way we try to… Read more

  • Humans Are Nature

    December 17, 2020 by

     The concept of humans and nature has been coming up (to me, in my life) a lot recently. At first I didn’t quite understand  how to articulate what other people were getting at. We  understood it on a level that I couldn’t quite explain and singular explanations weren’t clicking, and then it did.  We have… Read more

    June 30, 2020 by

    What does it say about our society when we applaud those who wake up at 4, 4:30, 5am to get in their “self care” — only to work themselves for the following 10-12+ hours with, often, the primary intention being to make more money or to have a greater reach into influencing society. What happens… Read more

  • Logan Kinei Nature Experience | Longnook Beach, Truro

    May 29, 2020 by

    Longnook Beach in Truro has become my favorite beach.  It is always quiet, at least in the off-season.  It is a massively expansive beach with towering dune bluffs.  There is an energy at this beach that Kait and I have both experienced.  We won’t have Truro beach stickers to go between the second or third… Read more

  • Can COVID-19 Introduce Necessary Change

    March 14, 2020 by

    I want to share some thoughts on this COVID-19 global pandemic. I’m not going to talk about the disease at all or what I think people should do.  I want to talk about what this disease is bringing to light.  There are several big ideas that have stood out to me during this so far,… Read more

  • Fort Hill & Red Maple Swamp Trail, Eastham

    February 28, 2020 by

    Fort Hill is about a three minute drive from our home, so we decided we would get in a quick walk on such a beautiful day.  The sky was clear and crisp but with a light breeze and a high of about 49 degrees.  Great condition for a nature walk, especially in February.   Fort Hill… Read more

  • Fear of Change

    January 17, 2020 by

    It is about 6pm on January 5, 2020.  Our last night in our home of three years in Philadelphia, but also our last night in my home of Philadelphia since 2011, and my home of the Philadelphia area since 1985.  And, whoa, I am getting hit hard with the feels in my stomach, including but […]

  • We Are Moving – This Is Why

    December 10, 2019 by

    I have been longing to experience somewhere new for a while.  I grew up in South Jersey, 20 minutes outside of Philadelphia and have lived between the two ever since.  After 34 years, I am finally moving away. When I went to Penn State for undergrad, I recognized that it was not far enough of… Read more

  • Children’s Book Reviewed by Dad: Peter Pan

    November 15, 2019 by

    Being 6 years old when Hook came out, I was a big fan, but not one of those fans that remembers all of the lines of the movie. I just liked it. However, I am not sure I fully grasped all of the nuances of the movie, even watching it when I was older.  Only… Read more

    November 15, 2019 by

    Let’s take a few minutes to talk about Baby Merlin’s Magical Sleepsuit.  Damn, this thing is magical indeed!  Weston is about 17 weeks old and he had his best night of sleep in his tiny little life the first night we put him in the Magical suit.  He had entered into a sleep regression for… Read more

    I’ve been contemplating this for a while now, and Kait and I have had many conversations about this. But it is something that I think about often, and I want to share it with you. So, here it is.  This is what I’ve been contemplating — I am going to write it how it plays… Read more

  • Maternity Leave: A Father/Husband’s Perspective

    October 25, 2019 by

    My wife, Kait, is scheduled to return to work on November 4.  This will be about three and a half months after the birth of our son, Weston.  In the US this is considered a good maternity leave, however, it is not good enough…at all. Kait’s company offers twelve weeks of full pay maternity leave. … Read more

  • What It Is To Be A Father

    October 18, 2019 by

    Do you know that postpartum depression can affect fathers, not just mothers?  It’s true, and luckily it’s becoming more widely known and accepted.  Personally, I don’t care about labeling what someone is feeling or experiencing.  The important part here is that people understand they are not alone and what they are going through is real… Read more

    October 4, 2019 by

    The past few weeks have been hectic to say the least.  Kait and I decided to put our house on the market, and in doing so our lives have become incredibly busy.  Though it is by far one of the most exciting times in our lives, it is also one of the most stressful.  … Read more

  • Movement is Important, but it is NOT Everything

    October 1, 2019 by

    Movement is the way of the body.  Movement is how the body expresses itself and interacts with the world.  It is one of the ways in which the mind interacts with the world.  When a human or animal can perform highly skilled movements, it is a sign of health and even prosperity.  Simply look to… Read more

  • Traveling with a Newborn: Cape Cod, MA

    September 27, 2019 by

    This was by far our longest car ride with Weston.  Philadelphia to Wellfleet, Cape Cod, Massachusetts is six and a half hours without stopping or traffic.  So at its best, it is double what we did last weekend, when traveling to Woodstock. We left Saturday morning. I had a client in the morning, so we… Read more

    September 24, 2019 by

    To follow-up on my post last week, Why I Took Out My Earbuds…. I mentioned my Apple products, Audible, and podcasts almost as if the problem is that they exist. That is not the case at all. The problem is always the user, me and you. We choose to use these devices, it’s not necessary.… Read more

  • Traveling with a Newborn: Woodstock, NY

    September 20, 2019 by

    This was our longest drive yet with Weston.  He was eight weeks old and every day has been different.  The past couple of weeks have been a little rough at times, as far as Weston’s sleeping and our sleep.  He had his best night of sleep yet, six hours straight and then three and a… Read more

  • Why I Took Out My Earbuds

    September 17, 2019 by

    For last month, I have stopped wearing my AirPods while walking to and from working with clients.  Actually, the last time I remember wearing them was my trip to Tucson, which was one month ago. Typically, over the past 5 years that I have lived and worked in Philadelphia, I would go back and forth between… Read more

  • Traveling with a Newborn: Ocean City, NJ (Our First Trip)

    September 13, 2019 by

    As you may know, we took our first vacation with our newborn son, Weston.  He hit six weeks old half way through our trip to Ocean City.  Living and working in Philadelphia, we don’t use our car much.  On average, we probably drive it once every 2-3 weeks. Needless to say, Weston has not been… Read more
