Tkyosam's treasure


My Japan friend Tkyosam recently detoured from his life adventure in Japan to engage in a life adventure in the USA. He came to Los Angeles to participate in a lifestyle event with several media influencers. At first, I thought this effort an unworthy distraction from Sam's quite interesting niche and activities in Tokyo. However, after watching just a few minutes of a YouTube Live he did from a friend's apartment in Tokyo (Sam's back in Japan for a month) I realized that what I thought Sam had left behind in Tokyo was still there any waiting for him...only that he returned a much different and richer man for the experience. Going to America was not a life diversion as much as a treasure-seeking expedition; as Sam has acquired so much intangible wealth from his detour as to make him a far more interesting and compelling a figure than ever before.

  • I didn't go to the desert this week... Emily and I needed to take care of some things together and I stayed home instead. I'm glad I didn't go...though part of me thinks I'm just rationalizing away my disappointment in not facing down my fears out there - as I always have fears "out there." My out there is always someplace I'm reluctant to go - though usually I go, often not as far or deep as I'd like...but I go. How far did you go this week or month? Did you push past the place you'd normally turn back? At what price or consequence? I'll have my chance again in another two weeks... I'll go far then, I think - though I never really know for sure. I'll go far then, I think - as far as the simple man I am can muster. #GoingAlone
  • The bullseye aim suggests there's a target, yet offers no promise we'll hit the mark. I'll strive for the aim without expecting more than my best possible result. In fact, I'll expect sometimes to utter fail the mark.

Going Alone was begun by Kurt Bell in an effort to help others understand and manage  the recognition of the apparent indifference of the universe to our well being, happiness or even our existence, and to find ways to make a good life in spite of this fact.
