  • Connecting With Each Other

    Posted 2017-04-22 14:00:03 by: Dave A

    I saw an article the other day about an 11-year old boy who sets up a table in the NYC subway and gives five minutes of life advice to passersby for two dollars. He was nervous the first day, but discovered to his surprise that people lined up to talk with him. The only thing… Read ...

  • Celebrating Guatemala-Style

    Posted 2017-04-15 13:19:33 by: Dave A

    I celebrated my birthday last week. I decided to treat myself to a couple of days at the Las Lagunas Boutique Resort. (If you ever travel to the Flores, Guatemala area, I highly recommend them.) As much as I love my little hut, I was really looking forward to a couple of days of air… Read ...

  • Lupe and Juan Carlos

    Posted 2017-04-08 12:49:30 by: Dave A

    I would be remiss in blogging about my experiences here in Guatemala if I didn’t dedicate at least one post to Lupe and Juan Carlos. Who are Lupe and Juan Carlos? They are the hen and rooster that my friend got for me to help with all of the scorpions that have been showing up… Read ...

  • What’s Your Moment?

    Posted 2017-04-07 01:00:05 by: Dave A

    Hello B2BCyCon attendee and Blog Hopper! I’m writing this while sitting in a small, thatched-roof hut in the jungle of Guatemala. I moved here from San Francisco, CA about six weeks ago to write my next book, but more importantly because I knew if I didn’t, I would regret it for the rest of my… Read ...

  • Spring Equinox at Uaxactun

    Posted 2017-04-01 13:39:10 by: Dave A

    Last week I was fortunate enough to be able to go to Uaxactun, a Mayan archeological site near Tikal, for the Spring Equinox ceremonies with a friend of mine. The main ceremony began at 4 a.m. in the grand plaza. One the west side of the plaza is a pyramid; in the center is a large… Read ...

  • Breathing in the Sacred

    Posted 2017-03-25 14:00:59 by: Dave A

    Last week a friend and I went to Tikal, a large Mayan archeological site in Peten, Guatemala. Since I had been there before and he often leads tours through the site, we decided to go near the end of the day when the crowds and the heat had lessened. Specifically, we wanted to watch the… Read ...

  • Living in a Different World

    Posted 2017-03-18 12:19:24 by: Dave A

    I’ve been in Guatemala for a week now, and living in my little hut for five days. While I’m adapting well to life in the jungle, I’m continually amazed by how different people live in different parts of the world. From a foundational needs and safety perspective, there are some major differences between my life… Read ...

  • Really Connecting with Nature

    Posted 2017-03-11 14:17:53 by: Dave A

    The other night was my first night sleeping in my little hut. It’s a cute hut – it has an outdoor patio/living room, and inside there is a kitchen, sleeping area and bathroom. I have running water, electricity and indoor plumbing. A city girl can’t ask for more than that! But, as a city girl living… Read ...

  • Transitions

    Posted 2017-03-04 14:06:51 by: Dave A

    The last few weeks have been a time of transition for me: I completed my book tour, packed up my apartment and put everything in storage, said goodbye to family and friends, and moved (temporarily) to Guatemala. I spent the first two nights at a very nice resort while I looked at potential long-term places… Read ...

  • Traveling Light

    Posted 2017-02-25 14:40:22 by: Dave A

    When I travel, I travel light.  Everything has to fit into a carry on suitcase and a purse.  This 6-month trip is no exception. I’m flying with a roller board suitcase and a backpack (I figured a backpack would be better suited to life in the jungle than a purse would.). From a practical level,… Read ...
