In-spired To Explore

 

Every tick of the clock, is one second less to achieve your dreams.


I know this mantra from failures… The endless agonizing recycling of what might have been… followed by a litany of rationalizations and self-deceptions as I struggle to reconcile the void between the person I want to be and the person I fear I am. From High Exposure, an enduring passion for...unforgiving places, by David Breashears. 

To this end, I'm compelled to write about what it's like to wander amongst needled spires and house-sized boulders in the Superstition Mountains. Or, better, maybe just show photos of how to make the best out of a mishandled pandemic and a riotous transfer of power in the White House...
















































Peace and Love to all of you. And hang the fuck in there cause a new Captain is about to take the helm. #nomoreliesandchaos.

Mark, Bobbie, and our esteemed Gaia-Navigator Chis who, absent his skilled guidance, Bobbie and I would be totally lost.

  2. How are you progressing from falling with the bike? Better? The Superstitions are prettier than I thought they would be. Someday, perhaps we'll go up. It's not that far, it's just the whole driving places thing at the moment.
    Enjoy your surroundings.
