One Year. 366 Days. One year ago from Sunday, Evan and I set out on a great adventure—marriage. But we decided to make the actual day an adventure, as well, so we set out on bikes from Jackson, Wyoming to String Lake in Grand Teton National Park [28 miles], waited out the rain, vowed to… Continue reading a nearly grand anniversary.
As I said before, there are moments [strong, strong moments] that I want to remember from the time surrounding my accident. The night we came home from the hospital, I don't know if either of us thought we would ever sleep. Evan and I were both so exhausted, but as my face began to swell… Continue reading I want you to be here.
It was a week ago today that I was in the ski accident. The ski accident where I lost control. Couldn't gain control. The ski accident where I hit a tree. With my face. Whiplash. Lost consciousness. Blood everywhere. The ski accident when I broke my nose and cheekbone and bit through my lip. The… Continue reading I want to be here.
Things have been up and down and beautiful and sleepy and tough and smiley. ——— Wondering about blahgging: “It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.” - Mark Twain. Should I be keeping my mouth shut more? Ah, well. ——— Favorite song right now...… Continue reading triannual torrential.
I saw a girl on her bike get hit by a car today. I've never seen that. It was right downtown. The whole block froze. - ARE YOU ALRIGHT?! ...is all that was heard in the surrounding dead silence, yelled by many of us. Still no one moved. Everyone was still. She stood up. Shaken. … Continue reading to who? everyone.
If anyone was wondering, change is hard. And that's just how it goes. But, I have to keep reminding myself, I wouldn't trade the hard for the comfortable... the evolution for the stagnation. It's always been the darkness that breaks my bones so they can reset correctly and grow... really grow. So, what do you… Continue reading how come you never go there.
A great night of friends and laughs and cheese conies and then the news of Osama Bin Laden. Talking, eating, discussing, laughing, eating more. Then, driving home, a message from a friend who had left earlier. - Hey, I was just listening to the news about Bin Laden. It's just crazy to remember sitting in… Continue reading thankfulness in celebrating.
I'm sitting at home, drinking wine, being unproductively productive whilst watching Dark Was the Night Live. It's amazingly filled with Yeasayer, Feist, David Byrne, Bon Iver, etc. You should check it out. Or at least the albums... by far my favorite compilation ever. Just one: And then, at the end of one of the bonus… Continue reading i couldn’t if i tried.
I was very scared last night. A feeling too familiar. Hurting, in my side. Oh, no... My kidney's trying to sabotage me again. Two years ago I had a kidney infection and didn't know it. Thought it was something else. Denial about so many other parts of life lead to denial about my health. So… Continue reading …but i’m gonna live.
My new favorite is getting up early enough to listen to some good music, write in my journal and drink coffee. I think this is a normal favorite routine for many... but I'm behind. Many thoughts. Always. Excited for Thanksgiving. Will be in Southern Utah. Climbing. Holler! Heard this song this morning and remembered how… Continue reading way over yonder.
