This is the tumblelog of John Nord. In my life I have had 5 children, 39 jobs and run over 40,000 miles. I am using this as a meeting place for my ideas and a discussion about life
HIGHLIGHTED LIFE: silence and snow
It was snowing the night my Father told me how disappointed he was in me. I will forget a lot of things in my life, but I will never forget the way the wet snow sounded crunching under my size 5’s.At the time I was stunned with how loud the sound was but looking back, I think it was his silence…
Today is a huge day for you, James. You ooze talent and passion. And let’s not forget personality and looks. So off you go. Hardship and unexpected events lie in front of you but you have the right stuff. Keep making life an adventure and use your considerable intellect to choose the correct path.
Oh and one last thing. Don’t grow up. Keep youthfulness and its qualities part of you
I wouldn’t be opposed to grandchildren.

We had the completely insane opportunity to compete in a Pro-Am race aboard Puma’s 6 Million Dollar, carbon fiber Mar Mostro race boat. These boats are the fasted in the world (can reach speeds of 45MPH +) and are manned by the best sailors alive. It was exhilarating, exhausting and really just a whole lot of fun. Tomorrow they will do some sprint races and then leave for stage 3 of the Volvo Ocean Challenge
What an Awesome experience. Can’t wait to hear more
