Stunning San Francisco lights @ Twin Peaks Vista video




And we’re back.

I’ve been formulating some plans and planning some formulations lately, some of which are about this blog.

I’m considering putting this blog on hiatus once I finish editing and uploading all of my Hawaii videos. What do you think? Would you miss this site? Serious question, because I’m finding myself drawn to simplifying my life. No doubt that you are aware that most of my focus is going toward MYTH.LI these days and the upcoming books in the Mythic Sci-Fi series.

Anywho, if you have any thoughts about that, or today’s video, please use the Facebook comments below, or you can contact me directly.

Today’s video is a little break from Hawaii. This one is all about Twin Peaks, an awesome hill right in the middle of San Francisco!

The view from Twin Peaks is one of the best views of San Francisco that you can get (at least, without renting your own helicopter). And this video was shot at night, highlighting the lovely city lights along Mission.

Enjoy :)

Me: Top of Twin Peaks, where you can see the Golden Gate in the distance. And you can see the road we came up on and Market Street — look real close you can see the Trans-America Pyramid, and you can see the bay. Hard to capture with this, but it’ll give you a little taste. You can just drive right up here!

There’s more where that came from. Be sure to check out the wealth of travel videos in the Travel Video page.

A Letter to my Friends around the World: What I’ve been Meaning to Tell You




Today’s post is my 300th.

To recognize that, I’ve written an open letter to all of you whom I know well but haven’t spoken to in a while. I’m sorry if it’s been a while since we talked.

This article is dedicated to you.

 
 

Aloha, again. :)

I wanted you to know that I’ve been thinking about you.

As you know, I’ve been blessed to live in many different places, invariably meeting fascinating people along the way. Sometimes we become fast friends, and sometimes the tree of friendship grows more slowly.

I’ve thought about emailing you to schedule a skype call, or simply calling you out of the blue, but for some reason the timing never felt right. Although I’ve written about it multiple times in the past, I still seem to struggle with the concept of long-distance friendships, and I know that I’m not alone in that.

(Actually, if you want to understand how I feel about this in greater detail, I think you’d get a lot out of reading “Why Long Distance Friendships Always Fade”.)

Anyway, I’m sorry if I’ve let you down.

Please understand that I care about you very much, and you can call me any time. But also please understand that I have limited energy and time, and to be honest, I sometimes have trouble staying on top with what’s going on with my very own brother. (Perhaps embarrassing, but true.)

Basically, I want you to know that I do still care, even if we don’t talk for months.

Does that make sense? Is that stupid? Whatever the case, it’s how I feel. I want you to know that the lines of communication are open, even if I don’t have the time or mental bandwidth to reach out as much as I’d like. I’m balancing more now than I ever have before.

I still think about how we would share our philosophies, make jokes, and simply enjoy life together; and I want you to know that no matter what happens, I love you, with philia love, approaching agápe. I’m sorry if it seems like I’ve faded away; please forgive me. Thank you for sharing a season of my life.

I hope life brings us together once more, and we can have another walk, another talk, and another opportunity for communion between our hearts.

Thank you for reading this, and for being in my life.

Please know that you are never alone.

with a galaxy of gratitude,
Andrew

 

I realize that many others might also feel this way about their long distance friendships, so if you have a friend you feel similarly about, feel free to socially share, email, or otherwise send this to them, if you’d like. It’s an easy way to articulate to them how you feel. Thanks again.

It’s been an honor writing 300 posts for you, and the adventures still continue!

In fact, if you truly are interested in my work, you can follow my unfolding, fast-paced, award-nominated Sci-Fi series over on my other site, MYTH.LI — That site actually has more activity than this one these days.

I’m now giving away my new fast-paced, Sci-Fi novella, so sign up & grab it! Mahalo :)
