Motorbikes, Mr Desert and Miscalibration

I revved the throttle and the motorbike surged forward… Adyashatmypants, Mr Desert and I were on our way to the Maras Salt Mines and the ancient ruins of Moray. Adyashatmypants, you know already. Mr Desert (aka Sean) is my other housemate. His nickname refers to the fact that he has a habit of wandering off … Continue reading

My head on your nuts

24 hours ago, this was my view… I’d hiked up to this lookout with Adyashatmypants and a few friends, 2 dogs and 5 bags of definitely not dry rice cakes (caaaaaaaaaarbs 🤤).

Blue sky, gorgeous mountains and lukewarm San Pedro. Ok… The warm part wasn’t great – basically lukewarm cactus soup without the thorns – but hey, sometimes medicine is bitter 🤷‍♂️ … Continue reading

I Just Shat My Pants

The other day, my sister Ellie and I were talking about spiritual gurus. Specifically: All the fancy names they give themselves: Ram Dass. Adyashanti. Mukti. Mooji. Baba this and Baba that. It all gets a bit ridiculous if you ask me. I mean, I get it… Something profound happened to them and they want a … Continue reading
