Al Miller, R.A. is not a mad man. But he did trade his Dual Masters in Architecture & Business along with a decade of designing skyscrapers and hotels in San Diego, CA to travel to Santiago de Chile to teach English and Eco-tourism, only to fall in love with scuba-diving and the sailing life.

Season 1 is done and included secret bars, 70 days quarantined on SV Falkor and eating stingray. Set adrift this curious conversation with the Captain of Project Falkor as we chat about planning Season 2 of sailing towards the simple life.

What will 2021 include? Just a tiny trip across Atlantic from the Canary Islands to St. Lucia via Cape Verde, up the Windward Islands to Florida and the East Coast.

We take a look at the the effects of fixed and growth mindsets on learning, curiosity, and motivation.

The intro music is from Mr.Gnome; an alternative are rock married duo from Cleveland, Ohio.
