I'd like to do lots of travelling and visit different societies/experience different cultures... along with a lot of beautiful landscapes and cities

Eventually, I'd like to move to the east coast in a few years, and live in England for a while... for now, Portland will do (I really like it here ).

After I'm done galavanting around the globe, I'd like to settle down and move back to Hawaii and die.

<3

While it is sort of interesting the first time you see it, the color is usually institutional green - not very spectacular.

Green, white, pink, orange.....first time I saw them I was in the Rocky mountains alone @ night.
Freaked me so bad I dropped my doobie.

I've seen a curtain that went around the entite horizon and tunneled into a pinwheel directly overhead.
No doobie that time, only awe.

I think I'd like to marry again and have another child.
Nothing I've done else in my life compares to it.

Open up a small, friendly bike shop, tour California, live and ride in France for a month or two, jam with Greg Osby and Kenny Garrett (but that ain't happenin' any time soon).

ride till i die

Get as many people off their bums as I can. Into the gym, into walking, cycling, whatever. I just want to see people active.
