In a perfect world I would not live where I live or do what I do. I’d move elsewhere in the mountains of the norther Rocky’s of western Montana, or Easter Idaho, or even up to Alaska. Being one with God’s green earth, without the interference of Bullshit from other people and the endless drama that we create and for what, what good does it bring us as a people as a whole? Just my Guns, my family, my Jeep, my Stihl chain saw, and the forest enjoying life just making it, you know surviving without having to depending on anything or anyone else for it. Nothing like felling a tree, cutting it up into mill logs and or for fire wood. You know, well some know splitting wood with nothing but a maul or splitting axe, and that smell in winter or that oak burning. Love that smell can’t wait for it this winter to be honest. Guess my life and the events of my life made me who I am. I never grew up in the city, but I never grew up in the country either. I was born in the mountains in the Philippines, but I’m still southerner at the same time, the only Filipino Redneck I know of, and the only pacific islander or Asian I know of that talks with a southern accent. My first job ever was tree work and logging along with some contract grass maintenance for the first year. And to those of you who have never done logging or tree work and or at least for my old boss, it’s flat out the most physically demanding thing I have ever done in my life. So I guess you could say living on the land and the outdoors are part of my genetics, in my DNA, but also learning about felling trees brought a new respect for nature and living. I guess it’s like this my daddy instilled “a honest day’s work” in me, while my first job/boss instilled “you’ll work your ass off and get er done.” And truth is ain’t neither one of those ever failed me.

In 2 hours and 10 minutes I start the final month plus a few days in Jan of my time here in Afghanistan. Then I get to start heading home.
For those of you out there who follow me or will eventually run across my tumblr, I do have Google+ if you would like to follow me there, that will be the up to date page and everything on here will eventually be linked in from there.
Incase you haven’t been following me on G+
I left and it was winter back home in Richmond. When I return it will be the same time of year of the same month just a year later, winter. Winter does bother me, the cold doesn’t either other than making my joints ache. I think it’s a good thing that I return during this time of year, when things are slower, and life isn’t trying to race by in a flash. I had a taste of home not long about for 2 weeks out of the entire year, and it’s going to be different. I can see myself just anywhere once I’m home as things just fly around me at breakneck speed. I just observe and think about things I need to do and living life. I see life in a totally different way now, and life is something that is taken for granted greatly by pretty much everyone. But I have at least realized it’s not that complex, it’s actually pretty simple, just being happy and making it while being happy, and doing what you love to do not doing something because you think you don’t have a choice in the matter, because there is a choice always is unless you just lock that door on yourself and leave no option.
I know I haven’t been very active on here in a while, been busy with life and here’s the reason why.
If anyone is wondering why I have not been active on here recently well here’s why. Life is happening so I am forced to focus on things more important than being online, and or even going out taking pictures or video.
Also I have been focusing heavily on my Google+ page, and the more I use G+ the more I find it is want I have wanted for some time now in a business/social/professional network. So if you follow me here and want to continue to follow me, I’ll be on G+.
Oh here’s my Google+ page if you have it and want to follow me there.
