August 20, 2019 Something about being lost in the wilderness both frightens and inspires. Take it from me. It’s our first full day in the secret treasure that is Mark’s AirBnB 30 minutes outside of Cortez. An untouched wilderness sits just beyond a brown picket fence. Just beyond a well-manicured lawn and thoughtfully placed decor […]
August 19, 2019 We left the northern corner of Colorado today. Rising early to catch the sunrise, we watched with our coffees before hitting the road. The southern corner now awaits us and, as I drive, I reflect. Here are the things I learned in Walden, Colorado.
August 18, 2019 7:00 AM Yannis rouses from slumber just after I do. I am sitting perched upon the leather couch in the main room. Sky is slowly waking herself up as Yannis and I conference over the evening before. The sky was unlike any we’d ever seen and we spent the return leg of […]
August 17, 2019 You can’t appreciate your own world without the company of people you love. A tribute to the humans I love, have loved, will love. The number is small but meaningful. Existing in a world of social media, nonstop news coverage and a near dependence on smart phones blinds me often from what […]
August 16, 2019 Disney archetypes. The day before we left for our grand adventure into the untamed wilderness of Western Colorado, we spent the evening with my cousin and her young daughter. This new relative of mine was a cute and babbling mini human with a language only really understood by her mother and us […]
August 15, 2019 A call to the wild. I reached it. The point of no return. My dependency on the goings-on behind my phone screen reached levels I’m embarrassed to admit to. Hours of precious time were instead wasted for the short-term pleasures that existed online. This day was long awaited; the one that would […]
August 14, 2019 For Charlotte. We sometimes think life comes easy. We construct a fabulous vision in our minds for what our future will look like. The details, from the grandest to the most minute, can sweep us away into a fantasy and the time spent pouring ourselves into that will inevitably convince us of […]
August 13, 2019 We grow up. Years take from us the liveliness of youth, the wonder of a world undiscovered. Every day that stretches by is another day that saps a mysticism from our surroundings and drives us further into cynical understanding. Must it be that way?
August 12, 2019 I don’t think I am yet at the point where I create content that appeals to the masses but in this moment I don’t really care all that much. Writing is still something I do for fun and the mentality shift from fun to hustle is a slow but steady transition. Anyways, […]
August 11, 2019 Me, a Scorpio. Writing everyday is helping ease me into a headspace where turning on the writing brain becomes easier to reach. As soon as I open a blank page, the words tend to flow from fingertip to screen. The difficult and unwavering part of this process continues to be choosing ideas […]
