    Echoes of the desert past,,, can still be heard, through the mystical wind, of this old mining town! Reflecting the life, that once was!

    5,000m above sea level. To give you an idea of how high that is, Mt. Everest base camp is 5,300m and Mt. Kilimanjaro is 5,800m. 
Hiking with limited oxygen felt like the time you spontaneously decide to rearrange the furniture in your living room, struggling to push the heavy sofa into the opposite corner, only to realise it looked better in its original location. Endless sofa permutations up a hill.

    260 to 240 half way there. I set the goal to go from 260 to 220. Look how big that head and face are 😂😂. The day after Easter was day 1 and I set the goal to achieve that by Sept 1st. Excuse my big mouth but we're all adults here, I'm gonna shatter that mother fucker. No filter, no sucking my stomach in, no camera tricks. Thats all Dwayne Johnson look a like me. I ran the mile today in 8:15 and that feels phenomenal for someone who would get tired walking up steps in Feburary. I fit into an XL for the first time since at least 15 years ago and I'm not counting my addiction years because that's not the way to lose weight healthy. I'm never going to be a small guy being almost 6'3 with size 14 shoes and hands the size of bear claws. I have a head the size of Oregon so it doesn't look right when I'm skinny lol. Another gift recovery and willpower has blessed me.

    Self-identifying as an environmentalist never felt quite right. Not because I don’t love the earth, but because I often didn’t (and often still don’t) see myself or my values reflected in the movement.
🌲
When I think of being an “environmentalist,” I think beyond a love of the outdoors, plastic waste, the benefits of reducing meat consumption, and individual carbon footprints; I think about systems, policies, and legislation.
🌲
I think about the fact that the poor and communities of color across the world are most affected by pollution and climate change due to systemic inequalities rooted in racism and classism.
🌲
I empathize with the nearly 24 million Americans living in food deserts as benefits such as SNAP are under constant threat.
🌲
I think about the family that can’t afford to trade in their clunker for a more reliable and efficient vehicle because they’re barely making ends meet as it is.
🌲
I defend the family being carbon shamed for flying because they only get to see their family once a year.
🌲
I question why we don’t legislatively push for greater corporate social responsibility, in addition to voting with our dollars.
🌲
I think about pollution and dangers left behind after wars and military weapons testing unbeknownst to citizens until tragedy.
🌲
I’m concerned that educational systems aren’t preparing the next generation to get ahead of future challenges.
🌲
I lambast our crumbling public infrastructure that makes the delivery of everything from potable water to to electricity inefficient and unequal.
🌲
I think about how the commodification of trash has created our current recycling kerfuffle.
🌲
I take note of the contradiction between our cries for sustainability and our desire to conveniently consume.
🌲
I’m frustrated by our global inability to come together for climate change due to geopolitics and partisanship.
🌲
It’s all connected and I deeply believe that in order to remedy our environmental failures, we must evaluate them through an intersectional lens that explores the systemic hows and whys. Otherwise, we’ll continue to put a bandaid on a gash and wonder why we’re bleeding.

    Rain is one of my favorite things in this world, so I love when my couples are not afraid to embrace it.
↟
Anytime it’s raining (even pouring) you’ll find me slowing my walk to just take everything in. I remember coming out of the grocery store a few weeks ago. It was pouring and my car was parked far away, but it didn’t discourage me. In fact, I immediately got excited because I knew I would get to feel, what I consider, a gift from God dance across my skin. I also love to live moments outside the norm. Our life can get so autonomous.  Why not mix things up a bit??
↟
So I walked out slowly, feeling the muggy air and cold droplets all at once. The world smelled of rain - you know the one - and lighting danced across the sky. I looked around watching people running, huddled under jackets traveling to evade the gifts I so cherished in that moment. It made me sad for them - to think of all they are missing.
↟
I’m learning to be more still in my life, and this is one of the ways I strive to do so. Nature speaks so strongly to me because it’s one of my closest connections to God. So I could not be more thankful for moments like this one. I finally got back to my car - absolutely SOAKED. But I felt like a little girl who’s Father’s hand I got to hold as I splashed through puddles. It was glorious.
↟
I pray this will be encouragement for you. To find stillness in ways that most would rush through - to not miss the gifts God places directly in front of you. 🧡
