In Iceland

I had already found that it was not good to be alone, and so made companionship with what there was around me, sometimes with the universe and sometimes with my own insignificant self

Happy 4th the July!

Enjoying family in Aspen CO. No  words can explain how great it is to spent time with  my brother in Aspen CO. 

And I could see for miles miles miles

On my Mum's birthday I decided to celebrate by going up the mountain, looking at the sky and wishing her a happy birthday. We are all connected, no matter how many oceans we need to cross, we are all under the same sky. Happy Birthday Mum!


Just got home after staring at the stars for a couple of hours. Good night Aspen

As I was leaving work I noticed the most beautiful sky tonight. I just stayed out in the dark staring at the stars for two hours, time went so fast that I did not realized that it was 2:00 am, these are some of the things that make me feel alive.  
The sky felt like a cozy blanket covering up all the souls sleeping under it.
No matter how different people might feel they are, we all live under the same sky, under the same stars, under the same sun.

Happy Sunday!

Happy Sunday! Cathedral Lake looks nothing like last year at time time. I got a big surprise while walking up the almost unrecognizable trail today. Avalanches had caused some serious damage up there. The lake still somewhat frozen. I remember going up last year a month ago. My photos look like I was in a completely different place! Mother Nature once again.

A word on Solitude

I had already found that it was not good to be alone, and so made companionship with what there was around me, sometimes with the universe and sometimes with my own insignificant self. Up in the Aspen Mountains, enjoying the universe as companionship.

 There is always a lesson to learn on each and every day we live, we simply need to pay attention to the signs, what the world is showing us.

Everything changes constantly, no river ever looks the same, no glacier or sky. I have seen this with my own eyes here in Iceland, which is a constant reminder of this idea of change.

Things might look the same but they never are. We, as humans, are constantly changing as well, just like the river might change its course in order to keep moving forward. There are times when we run fast and times were we heardly seems to be moving, but we always are.   

I'm learning to embrace every section of the rive and every part of the journey. 

This little video is a simple thank you to Justin Vernon for the inspiration

A word on becoming...

If you learn to really sit with loneliness and embrace it for the gift that it is…an opportunity to get to know you, to learn how strong you really are, to depend on no one but you for your happiness…you will realize that a little loneliness goes a long way in creating a richer, deeper, more vibrant and colorful you.

A word on Patience

Patience is not the ability to wait. Patience is to be calm no matter what happens

To learn to see -  to accustom the eye to calmness.

One must not respond immediately to a stimulus; one must acquire a command of the obstructing and isolating instincts.

Gentle & Sweet

Justin Vernon will say...
Must've been forces
That took me on them wild courses
Who knows how many poses
That I've been in
But them the main closest
Hark! it gives meaning mine
I cannot really post this
Ah feel the signs 

HOW I FELT IN LOVE WITH THE GLACIERS OF ICELAND

A man who keeps company with glaciers comes to feel tolerably insignificiant by and by. The Alps and the glaciers together are able to take every bit of conceit out of a man and reduce his self-importance to zero if he will only remain within the influence of their sublime presence long enough to give it a fair and reasonable chance to do its work

Raging Waters in Iceland Today

The wind has its reasons. We just don't notice as we go about our lives. But then, at some point, we are made to notice. The wind envelops you with a certain purpose in mind, and it rocks you. The wind knows everything that's inside you. And not just the wind. Everything, including a stone. They all know us very well. From top to bottom. It only occurs to us at certain times. And all we can do is go with those things. As we take them in, we survive, and deepen

Chasing Hot water in Iceland

Eruptions at Geysir can hurl boiling water up to 70 metres in the air. However, eruptions may be infrequent, and have in the past stopped altogether for years at a time.
