Excuse Me, How Long Until We Land?
Suspended in the air, between everything I expected and what is. Between the past and the future that suddenly has taken a different shape. I thought I'd be in California right now. I had everything lined up, from finances to hotels for the trip to my inter...

Peace and Wisdom
It has been ... a crazy week. Last week I worked a full week of high adventure camp, which was a big change from the usual day-adventures that I help lead. It was a fun, stretching, learning week, and while I really enjoyed it, I was tired by the end. Then ...

Humility and Hesitation
Do you ever have those moments where your heart is in the right place ... but your brain isn't? You're trying to do the right thing, but for a fleeting moment you don't think it through, and then everything falls apart? I hate those moments. And I've had at...

On Being Known
I've never been able to nail down my "personality type." I've tried many a test, but nothing seems to accurately read who I am. There are two things I can tell you, though. I am what most people would call an introvert. I am also fairly self-aware. If I beh...

The Sky Is Clearing
Remember last time when I sounded a little bit confused about how all the pieces of life fit together? Yeah, I still don't get it all. At the same time, like clouds parting to reveal a beautiful starry night, some of my confusion has blown away and I may ha...

Summer-y
People ask me about my summer. There’s no easy way to communicate what goes through my mind
when I think about the last few months. In moments, a vivid, disjointed
slideshow of memories plays out in my head. I see rapids, cliffs, and familiar
smiles. My hea...
