I'm so glad you found your way here!  

Funny thing: the title of this blog comes from the Tennyson poem "In Memoriam: AAH," which is long, dark and sad.  But this blog, I promise, will not be too dark or too sad.  I pulled those lines because they reflect what I'm always trying to do with my time: to look outward, find adventure beyond myself, burn away the bad, and kindle hope and optimism in others.

So come back weekly for mini essays on those little-talked-about adventures, some in your own backyard, and a whole host of other notions and views meant to get you out beyond your problems - whatever they may be - and back into the light of day.  

Next up: a two-part post on Little Cayman!
