My name is James. I am a former Army officer and a free spirit, two forces at constant odds with one another (freedom won!). I am a son, a brother, a friend, a poet of sorts, a philosopher, a rebel, a lover of life and nature possessed of a gypsy’s soul. After 8 years in uniform (in which I’ve fought most fervently to keep my passions alive), I am at the cusp of a new life and brimming with excitement for the world to come.
This is my medium for sharing my inspirations, aspirations, meditations, and joys as I transition out of uniform, on to the Appalachian Trail, and onward to whatever follows. The road goes ever on and on… and it is awesome.
