A Few Words:

Sometimes
I go about pitying
Myself,
While I am carried by the wind
Across the sky.

Ga' gandac' (aka George Walters), Ojibway tribal singer
from the translation of Frances Densmore



Calendar

Too much low-hanging fruit lately.

November 2013 > I will be in Colorado for my 45th birthday.
In a Nutshell

Coffee. Trail running, cycling, hiking & photography. History, art & literature. The Colorado sun, the Alps & the Habsburgs. Port, Slovakia & moja princezna. Full grain leather, Santa Fe & Jack Bauer. Aalto & Roberto Fonseca. Clarity, balance & wisdom.
What Makes Me Tick

The mountain that I seek to climb is merely the sublime from which I have grown and to which I continuously wander. I climb not because the mountain is there. I climb on and climb higher because I am here, whole, as if nothing else matters.

Feel free to contact me for any of the climbs on my interest/goals list.
