This Blog

This blog is dedicated to explorations of spirit, life, adventure, and people. I hope that it encompasses much more than the actions of people, but rather creates a more complete picture of what it means to be an athlete and a person in the outdoor community.

Today there was a death on the river. Jay Lynn and I put on Upper Indian creek and a team of kayakers were putting on right behind us. They asked if they could use our shuttle and we said yes, but continued downstream before them as we were in a hurry to meet other boaters down canyon. Later, we were told that a member of that group had been lost after swimming into a sieve.

Let us take moment to recognize how fragile this life is,
that we cannot take it for granted,
That, though death is immanent,
it should merely show us that we must live each day fully.

Let us think of what blessings we have in our lives and be thankful for them.

My thoughts go out to those kayakers today who lost a friend, and whomever else treasured him.
