Reaching Profitability – 7 Things I’ve Learned

water vole

In May, I met my revenue goals, and in June I'll take a pay-check - my first since I escaped my gilded cage. It's an exciting milestone, and one I'm proud of. However when people say they envy my life, or that I'm "living the dream" I get quite irritated. Yeah, it looks good, now. It ...

This Week


Life Taking a break! Went off to Easter Island where there was Little Internet. I could exchange messages, but couldn't really load web pages. So I limited myself to posting one picture a day and disconnected a bit. It was so good for me. Then spent a night at Santiago airport, and arrived in Rio. One of my ...

The Number 30

I have mostly been trying not to think about how I'm turning 30 this year, but actually it turns out the amount of upheaval I have put myself through lately is often a function of being in a year ending with a 9. People search for meaning, apparently. And that has certainly been true of me. When ...

Malta, March 2015


In between conferences I decided I needed some sunshine and R&R. I ended up in Malta with my mom, which was not particularly sunshiny... or relaxing. But it was definitely interesting. First, the greatest public transport experience of all time - there was an owl on the bus. Other than that, Malta is in a strategic location at ...

This Week


Life Last week in Bogota, so I took a couple of days to do some final exploring, and then caught a flight to Santiago. Bit wrung out after the previous week, which was Intense and ended with a breakup. Trying to be kind to myself and just go to the gym when I want to cry... although ...

Creative Solitude

Danbo Phelps

Before I  left for South America I kept being asked "aren't you going to be lonely" like loneliness is some terrible thing to be avoided at all costs. Since I've been here, people have been commenting "you seem to be very productive" and it's true. I have been. I say, "I'm embracing a kind of creative solitude." And ...
