Thanks for poking around here, my name is Skander. I’m a mechanical engineer that likes skiing, climbing, writing, and energy efficiency. Check out the first entry for the story behind the name of the blog. This is mostly just for me- a record of how I’ve spent my time.

What makes you feel like you are living your best life? When is the last time you looked back to really examine how you have lived? Feel free to leave a comment and/or ask me to email you if something I said caught your attention (I also like knowing about broken links). A few of my favorite posts:

If You Loved Me


Red Rocks

The Cirque

    that’s great, Skander, to have it directed to my email. I’ve read all the posts up til today, and am happy to be journeying along with you. Thanks for wanting to stay connected.

    I wish someone had a camera rolling of your effort to get the car to AAA access. So grateful you have that membership. Would your car insurance be able to help at all? Michael says it’s worth checking.

    There’s a definition of freedom I’ve been thinking about: the ability to cherish and pursue an idea. Remember, dear son, that the Opposition claims to win by putting fear in your heart. But ultimately the Opposition must dissolve because the Love that motivates your life purpose cancels the fear. How sure I am that your trip is protected because motivated by love.
