Hello from the Pacific! God bless all of you hubbers out there in cyberspace.

I am in the process of transitioning into becoming primarily a teacher, writer, crossfitter, and musician. The arts appeal to me. They provide healing to my false type-A personality which I walked around in for years. I love the sound of birds, shoes crunching on branches, the feel of a good keyboard, the rich layers of the acoustic guitar, time to reflect, and hoisting weights over my head during a crossfit work out. The road less traveled is good.

It's a good and challenging life we live. It's time to smell and think about the roses again.

I enjoy a multitude of topics, but on this hub I will focus on crossfit, spiritual, nutritional, poetry, and historical topics, especially military, Japanese, and Hawaiian history. The world is a treasure trove of information. I love it.

I've worked in the banking industry, educational administration, pastoring, restaurant management, chef, and now as a teacher, writer, and counselor.

Life is amazing, always something new around the corner. Thank you for making my sojourn on this small island called planet earth rewarding and inspiring. You folks are the best. I am looking forward to reading your fabulous hubs and growing wiser through the process. Thank you again for taking the time to read my profile
