Happy Birthday Old Friend

July 4, 2019 Gary Wanderlust 0

So I woke to today in Manila on my countries birthday, before it’s even it’s birthday (unless you are in Guam), I wrote this. Happy birthday old friend. I hardly recognize you. I used to be so proud to be yours but lately i find myself hiding it in conversation […]

Pulse

June 12, 2019 Gary Wanderlust 0

Three years ago I wrote this blog in response to the Pulse nightclub shooting. It is interesting to re-read and also think of how so many changes within me can be directly linked to this tragedy. It helped push me out the door into what I am doing now. It […]

June 8, 2018 Gary Wanderlust 0

Clearly, Anthony Bourdain was an influence on my life. This quote is nearly my whole mission statement. I hate feeling this way about a celebrity but this is just devastating. I looked up to him, his triumphs and his faults. Nobody knows better than I do that people die, but […]
