There were always bound to be more photos coming from the Minnas Ridge hike – and there will be more.
First: writing. I went to Parksville today to meet and talk with a new client. I like the “new” part of this – I enjoy new challenges. I enjoy the achievement hit I get from completing new things. Actually, I enjoy the “old” things too, but new is always good because it stretches me again.
The same is true of hiking – I am in a place now where I want to stretch my comfort zone more and more. I don’t think I have ever had a year of more “new” trails and challenges than this one – from Europe to the island – tons of new challenges. The feeling of achievement has been tremendous. But better than that, these adventures have raised my comfort zone so that I am ready to take on even more. I feel more intrepid and more ready than ever to embrace new things.
Politics: I am gaining some interesting perspectives. What I see, I don’t like. I think politics change people and in a way that is not necessarily good. It’s a tough game.
For now – that’s enough said about that.
