I love the creative process and expressive platform this stage permits me. Artistic and technical, iterative yet open-ended, balancing color and format and content. Choreographies micro, macro, meta but also generative, self-reflexive, both seamless and suffered over.
.
Lately, vertical composure driving diptych visual storytelling, and time capture, and experimentation. Tempo and motion and atmosphere.

Shadows glow as well as the light. Man and sand and salt and stone. Passing beneath wonders of the ancient world, over hallowed grounds of Pharaohs and Emperors and Prophets, waking and sleeping on mysteries nearly forgotten but more lost. Honored guests invited to sail and feast and whirl through quiet, protected passages under the protection of an Arabian moon and her hawk eye.

I’ve always been fascinated by human energy that is incongruent. Glimpses of Knowing, of holding a different truth, of resisting.

Your Petra is there to be beheld, to be revealed. All you have to do is make your way through the winding slot canyon, no matter how many twists and turns it takes, no matter how many times you lose the sky. Your path is only ever leading, can only lead to once place. And she’s there, waiting eternally patient.

It seems no work of Man's creative hand,

by labour wrought as wavering fancy planned;
But from the rock as if by magic grown,

eternal, silent, beautiful, alone!
Not virgin-white like that old Doric shrine,

where erst Athena held her rites divine;
Not saintly-grey, like many a minster fane,

that crowns the hill and consecrates the plain;
But rose-red as if the blush of dawn,

that first beheld them were not yet withdrawn;
The hues of youth upon a brow of woe,

which Man deemed old two thousand years ago,
Match me such marvel save in Eastern clime,

a rose-red city half as old as time. - Burgon, 1884

The only Presidential quote about camels one could ever need; also you will now recall this strange lesson on effective US Military spending and proportionality every time you see a camel, forever :
.
“When I take action, I’m not going to fire a $2 million missile at a $10 empty tent and hit a camel in the butt. It’s going to be decisive.” - George W. Bush

The oh-so-precious, far-too-rare, instinctively simple joy of waking up early and climbing something, anything, the need-to-be-up-there-somewhere, rising higher and higher because you can feel that pull. Rewarded with deep breaths and clear vision to fold that sunrise into the wide-open-spaces of your heart.

The year I climbed 4 big mountains and have 2 stress-fractured feet to show for it. The year I proved that living honestly and failing frequently is the way for me. A year I became more myself, and more sure that being me is worth it.

Prehistoric man was here. Then came the Bronze Age. Then the Phoenicians. Then Rome. Followed by the Byzantines and then the Aghlabids, the Sicilians, the Swabians, the Aragonese, and the Spanish. Next the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem to the French to the British as a Protectorate then as a Commonwealth. Finally, the Republic of Malta. The Maltese and the Gozitans are here now. Except they were here first. First, last and forever.

She smashed it. 
A careless sweep.
Green glass shattering on the floor at her feet. 
Stunned. 
Are you hurt? 
No. Not hurt, as she started to weep. 
Green glass tears streaming onto green glass shards over barefoot feet.
He scooped her up. 
Above and away from the green glass shattered, scattered mess. 
Sobbing for their green-glass shattered past. 
Green glass futures dashed. 
She couldn’t help but weep. 
Green class shards cut more than skin deep.

The Argentinian, Thomas, is friendly. And dirty. He has been traveling for 9 months, having left his consulting job. There is a history there, how telling I think, knowing only a few would understand. He has travelled the world one week at a time. 
I ask if he’s travelled in the United States. “Yes, two times,” his accent is endearing. “One week in Florida.” I involuntarily laugh, a sound escapes that belies Florida as a less than desirable destination. 
He reads me well. “Yes, it was the last time I traveled with my mother.” I laugh out loud, rolling laughter. 
He preferred Washington DC. Two weeks in Japan, he favored Osaka. I tell him about free campsites on Nijima; next time, yes, next time. One month in the North of Sweden for the Northern Lights, one month in India. He tells me about the sleeper buses, better than the train; next time, yes, next time. His white long sleeve shirt is stained and filthy; his beige crocks, practical; his black jeans, less so. He swears they are only for relaxing. He will go to Papluke to catch the jeep back to Kathmandu - he relishes the money he will save. And now he knows he can hitchhike from Nuntalla. 
The world is his oyster, and he’s even started reading in English. He laughs a lot, bright eyes dancing behind a shaggy beard. “Fucking Spanish people don’t read, or don’t travel.” He laughs more.

I wish I could bottle this feeling. But I haven’t figured out quite how yet. So instead, I’m sitting on a large rock in the late afternoon, the sun coming and going behind approaching clouds blown up the valley on a steady breeze. I’m sitting on a boulder along a glacial moraine, more than halfway down the trail, nearly there, because it couldn’t wait. I couldn’t wait. I need to capture this feeling that can’t yet be bottled.

Deranged respite amidst a swampy coast where one must choose carefully between the scorching sun, the drenching humidity, or the innumerable snapping, stinging, biting reptiles and insects. Then come to terms with resignation to all three.

Today, a man flashed his ego and pushed me on what I’ve climbed...
.

“Well, have you climbed any of the 4000ers?” Yes, yes I have.
.
“Well, which ones?” I came off Mont Blanc last week actually.
.
“*head nods*”

Frozen heartbreak for a thawing world. 
Where have all the glaciers gone? 
Drip drop bleeding into an ocean of none. 
Thawing, heartbreaking world of one. 
One without, drip drop bleeding until they are gone.
