You can't see them in the pic, but there are two tents that Shade insisted we add to the landscape (actually, you can just barely see the top of one white tents comin' around the mountain on the right, above the trees and below the snow). Yep, you guessed it, those two tents belong to he and I, and our buddies Keith and Zach, who are going with us this summer to this very mountain, across that very river, and into those very trees.
I'm wearing the anticipation of our trip right on the top of my heart, even while Shade will quite literally be wearing it right on the top of his head at his program this week.

"I guess you may have already figured out that the key to living a life of faith is the willingness to wholeheartedly - and fearlessly - embrace and speak the truth. And speaking the truth is not just about being decent and moral with others; it is about being ruthlessly truthful with yourself, no matter how painful. Without being willing to know and honor your own deepest truth you will hinder your progress on your spiritual path, because you are dishonoring your connection with the Sacred, which knows absolutely everything about you, and adores you." -- A.C.

"Watch and listen to yourself very carefully. Scrutinize what you so rudely criticize. 'There's gold in them thar' hills,' ...at least the gold of self-awareness." - Jim Spivey
