Trapper Peak - Bitterroot Mountains - Montana
Marlaena is making me blog. We got bigotry sandwiches from chick fil a and Randolph super packed my car like a champion… And now he is driving. Burst into tears a few times this morning reading notes, stressing about packing and of course saying goodbye to my dad. status: in lucketts. GPS programmed toward Chicago. We’ll see how far we get!!!
I grew up with Evil Knievel and the Flying Wallendas. Thrilling as their stunts were, it was always a noisy spectacle. It seemed to be more about man conquering the Grand Canyon or the Tallulah Gorge than interacting with nature. The backdrop was a prop.
In this video, though, Michael Schaefer and Dean Potter create a scene as thrilling in its composition as in the act itself of walking the highline at Cathedral Peak. As the sun sets and descends, the moon rises and looms large — the orb cradling the dyad of rock towers turned burnt-red. As the National Geographic filmmakers say, it is “the ultimate full moon shot” — captured from over a mile away with a serious telephoto lens.
As Mr. Potterbegins his unaided walk, you hear the camera operator take deep, calm but anxious, meditative breaths. And you breathe with him. Oh, if we all could witness such panoramic beauty like this each day…
Fishing cabin in West Virginia
My dad and his buddies have this “off the grid” cabin that I just had the pleasure of seeing after 11 years of membership. Until 5 years ago, they only had an outhouse. It is one of the most remarkable places I have ever been
I bought a Williams-Sonoma cheese grater for my mom for Christmas once because I had no idea what to get her and I was in a mall and there the grater was, just large enough to take up space under the tree and just cheap enough to let her know that I put NO thought or care into buying a gift for her.
Nobody ever figures out what life is all about, and it doesn’t matter. Explore the world. Nearly everything is really interesting if you go into it deeply enough. Work as hard and as much as you want to on the things you like to do the best. Don’t think about what you want to be, but what you want to do. Keep up some kind of a minimum with other things so that society doesn’t stop you from doing anything at all.
