  • Charity project #2 success. $113,000 raised for homeless women This is what I do now. I create charity projects where I raise money, raise awareness and then kick in my cash. I think you know the gist of how and why I do it. No? You can read about it here. My second project was a series of marino wool blankets that I designed more

  • Go all the way. It’s the only good fight there is. Do you go all the way? Want to? Want to know the formula? I hand it over to Charles Bukowski and continue below…. If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. If you’re going to try, go all the way. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives, jobs and maybe even more

  • A beautiful story that just happened (the world is beautiful) Did you guys happen to see an Instagram post I ran a few weeks back of a kid in a running race stopping mid-race to comfort another competitor who was crying?

  • A guide to Peaceful Tokyo This post is a bit of departure from my normal travel guides. And from how people normally travel in big cities.

  • A hiking guide to Kumano Kodo, Japan Another hiking guide in my series. I’ve just completed the Kumano Kodo, an absolutely magical pilgrimage routes that crisscross the Kii Hantō, south of Osaka and Kyoto.

  • My next charity project: A merino wool throw (and a big dose of #giveashit) So, here’s the background It goes like this. I closed my business, I gave my $$$ to charity and now I make up fun shit that can get us giving. I’ll be honest, though. This whole caper relies on you guys wanting to #giveashit about giving and going to the edge of our care with me. The more
