Hi, I'm David. With over 40 years of executive management in my rear-view mirror, I have turned my attention in new directions. Now semi-retired in the hidden paradise called Savusavu on the island of Vanua Levu in Fiji I am working to rediscover who I am. Or perhaps discover it for the first time. I am part hard-headed engineer, part artist, writer and poet, part teacher and mentor, part leader and always a student.
Yoga, and it's philosophical roots in Vedanta, are at the core of everything I do. I am grateful for the opportunity to teach yoga here in Fiji. My classes here are for people of all ages and fitness levels, from teens to octogenarians, from physically gifted to physically challenged. There is no charge for any of my classes as I seek to share the gifts I have received from my teachers.
In this website, I publish a blog of musings and, hopefully, insights about living well and honorably. Our increasingly complicated and often frightening world presents daily challenges to each of us. Each of us faces things we have never had to before and for which we have no preparation or skills. There are ways of managing through all of that and finding our way to joy and fulfillment, and I hope to offer my experience, thoughts and ideas to help.
And I take pictures. This world we live in is so amazingly beautiful and often in quite unexpected ways. I seek in my photographs to both see in ways I have not done before and show the you parts of this gorgeous world that you have perhaps not seen before.
Teaching, writing, and photographing bring me joy. Oh yes, and my handsome, old, blind dog Buster who cuddles with me every day.
This was supposed to have been different. My wife and I moved to Fiji in early 2021 to begin our new adventure in retirement. We were supposed to do this together for years to come. But that didn't happen. In April of 2022 my wife of over 44 years passed away from a stroke. She passed away in our bed with me beside her holding her hand. So now every day I am learning anew who I am now. I can never be the person I was before, and I don't want to be. I'm learning who the "new me" is and I kinda like him.
Stop by if you are in the neighborhood and we'll have a cup of tea or a bowl of grog or just watch the sunset over the South Pacific.
The picture above was taken high in the Himalayas at a place called Gau Mukh, the glacier source of the Gange river.
