This clip from "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" keeps going through my head. This image of a guy sitting peacefully in the mountains, watching, listening, and just being there, waiting for the right moments.
This is the route I took in Alaska to spread my dads ashes. I was there this time last year.
Looking forward to reading 105 Hikes by Stephen Hui. I've always just heard word of mouth or looked at maps to figure out where to go. Seems that books like this are the way to go.
Imortan Joe saying "mediocre" is my jam.
Sysadmining after hours because it's the only time I can get stuff done uninterupted.
I've been blessed and cursed with ADHD. My mind is always a in flux and hardly ever calm. One thing that seems to do it though, and I derive great enjoyment from it, is in editing photos I've taken. Even just going through them and selecting them. It's like taking a deep breath and resting.
Submitted my application to the local SAR org. Fingers crossed. Would be nice to have a team to work with and learn from, and to do something useful with my time outside.
Spent 5 days in Yoho national park. Back and leg were acting up so didn't get to hike. It was nice to be in one place though and get a feel for the environment there.

I like making things. I left twitter, decided to create this microblog.
