Updates are Coming!
Finally! It’s long overdue, but I am refocusing energy on my website. It will be overhauled for the next few weeks, and once completed launched to the world wide webs. Till then, I am working on getting my mobile posting set up such that I can provide quick updates more regularly.
*When the Time Comes – Two Medicine Lake // Glacier National Park, Montana*
I have a childlike fascination with mountains, their rugged beauty never fails to bring a song to my soul. Thank you all for the birthday wishes yesterday, this was my birthday present from Mother Earth.
“Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves” ~ Henry David Thoreau
Don’t worry, I haven’t gone missing, just been side tracked here lately. Trying to start a few projects, and been working on tidying up the website for a possible overhaul to the design. Anywho, I’ve been slacking on the posts, so the next weeks I promise to get caught up.
*Run Away With Me // Crater Lake NP, Oregon*
Sometimes a good clear sky sunset is a welcome change from dramatic clouds and color. It takes some of the pressure off, and I feel more at ease with nature. There is a serenity to following the stars, a calm that comes from being alone in the dark. In these moments your eyes begin to really see the wonders of the sky.
The Wee Hours
I love staying up late, and being up early. I suppose I just like being around when the majority of the population is fast asleep. It’s quiet, peaceful, and beautiful.
*As the Town Sleeps – North Shore // Big Bear Lake, California*
After being sufficiently sundrenched in the desert at Joshua Tree, I took off towards the mountains of San Bernardino County. While it wasn’t quite as adventurous as hammocking in the desert, the beach/wine/reading created a welcome afternoon, and the clear skies that night quickly filled with the sparkles of the milky way.
I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I’ll be posting a new gallery here shortly.
*Swept Away – Ruby Beach // Forks, Washington*
If there is one thing you have to keep an eye out for while camping on the beach, it’s the tides. Then again, if you’re asleep, and the tide comes in higher than you’re expecting, sometimes the tide reminds you just how high it will go.
In the Moment
I’ve been contemplating a speech I heard recently by Jim Carrey, if you haven’t already seen it, it was exactly what you’d expect from him, but a whole lot more.
“Now fear is going to be a player in your life but you get to decide how much. You can spend your whole life imaging ghosts, worrying about the pathway to the future. But all there will ever be is what is happening here and the decision we make in this moment…” ~
*Fading Away – Mt Redoubt // Kenai Peninsula*
Every once in a long while, everything seems to work out. The stars align and you’re in exactly the right place, the right time, with the right resources. Take the time to enjoy those moments.
All you have to do is commit your entire life to something, which will result in one of two outcomes. Either you will succeed, or you will die trying, which is in and of itself it’s own form of success. ~ Caset Neistat
*Down the Road – Northern Illinois // Cherry Valley *
Why does wandering off into the sunset have to have such an allure?…
