Inspiration For The Week: 29/09/14 On An Endlessly Changing Horizon

“…But in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure.

Inspiration For the Week: 22/09/14 on Delicious Ambiguity

“ I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity. “

Aaaaaaannnnnddd WE ARE BACK!!

Since early 2011, Journey with Jess Jones has been an ever evolving work in progress, however, it has taken me a drastic 5 months of zero posting, 3 in which I let the site become completely inactive, to realize that it was morphing into something that it wasn’t meant to be, something that wasn’t authentically me.

I have had the lucky pleasure, once in a lifetime opportunity, and grand surprise to spend two blissful months in the Abacos, coined, “the real Bahamas,” and experience what life is really like ‘living on a rock’ as locals say. I’ve been based on a yacht, on the island of Elbow Cay, in White Sand, a ten minute (slow) golf cart ride from the town center of Hope Town. Typically my days are spent drifting between walks on the beach, Read more…
