This is Me. This is #MakeitHappen.


There is a song inside me that is destined to top the charts.
There is a need to be happy and in control at all times.
I can see myself being someone who comforts people and makes them feel great.
But also extreme anger, that at times makes me say things I cannot believe.

Loving the Bike Make it HappenDefinitely there is a desire to write a book that sells millions.  Not necessarily just for the money that would come from it.  But also for the lives that could be changed as a result.
A Love for solitude.  A Love for Family.  A Love for Comfort.
I close my eyes and watch myself performing on stage.  A superstar with all the right moves, a great voice, and total charisma.

A Boy who hasn’t lost his innocence.
A Man who definitely has.
A Father who should welcome it in his children.
A Guy who just wants to ride his bike.

A desire to tell the world……Creating understanding…Not being a Preacher.
Not speaking of religion.  Not politics.
But Culture and Humanity.
I see so many things that I wish I saw differently.

Realizing that it’s about the message….Not the messenger.
Talking about how it is supposed to be……Not how I am.
Feeling a strong need to live with unlocked doors, neighborly conversations, constant Sunshine, Happiness, Love, and so much more.
A lifelong student of learning how to get it right….or better yet, realizing it doesn’t have to be right.  How to be Positive.  How to be happy-go-lucky.  How to not sweat the small stuff……and just be alright.

Enjoy Your Ride

    Your best post, ever. Some great words, directed right to the heart of how I feel about myself as well.

    If you write that book, let me know so I can buy a copy and have you sign it.

      I really appreciate it, Paul. If/when I write a book, I’ll hand deliver a signed copy to you.

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.


Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
