Almost a year since I wrote words here. Since I shared my life. Crazy how so much time can pass and you don't even really feel it until the reality of it stares you in the face. The goal of course is to write here more often. To document the art making, the outdoor adventures, and perhaps, a little of what goes on inside my brain.
It is summer once again and my energy and focus is on being in the mountains as much as possible. I paint in the evenings after work, and on weekends when the weather or human committments keep me from the trails. And this is just how I like it. Solitude at all the right times. The company of good friends when that feels good too. And always with my canine companion.
Vacation plans are coming together and the hiking destinations are too. The weekends fom now until late September are filling up with wonderful life. There is always work to be done, but summer is the time for me to live more freely. Slow down and enjoy the long daylight hours. To sit outside for the mere splendor of it. Life is not to be wasted.
Enjoy these days.
