As I sit here on my father’s roof deck in the East Cape of Baja, Mexico, the rhythmic crash of waves and the vast canvas of stars above me with the southern cross cresting the horizon, I’m reminded of the raw, untamed beauty of the world. It’s in these moments, away from the cacophony of daily life’s grind, that I find clarity and peace unparalleled by any other experience.

I’m reminded that immersing ourselves in nature is not just a luxury; it’s a necessity for our sanity.

I’ve been coming down to Baja since my father first built a home here over twenty years ago. He was off the grid with solar power and sustainable living before it was cool.
