I could have stayed in the office and caught up on work, but the mountains were calling and I had to go.
I’ve been away for the past five weeks, travelling in southwestern United States and overseas to Ireland. On each trip, I was immersed in moment – the pull of the river through canyon country, the spirit of the roads winding through the green isle – but now that I am back in the Rockies, I’m reminded that home is where the heart is and my heart is in the mountains.
“Because in the end you won’t remember the time you spent
Working in an office or mowing your lawn
Climb that goddamn mountain.”
– Jack Kerouac
