In “More, More, More” Jake shares a story of the spiritual awakening that led him back to the sea, after descending into “a vampire lifestyle” of addiction, hallucination and off-the-rails experimentation. A single moment sent him packing for a slow-moving journey of detox and healing though Europe and, eventually, to the Mediterranean. He knew the medicine he needed was sunlight and saltwater.
