A Different Kind of Packing

Yes, I packed today – but not so much the household stuff. Today it was more about packing for my road trip and stay at the Hoffman Institue for the next week.

So – here’s the thing: this will be my last post for a week – perhaps even 8 days or so.

I understand that iPhones and iPads are considered contraband at Hoffman. With my luck, they’ll also take my stash of chocolate.

But no matter: the point is I’m going there to do the work. I know that the way to get the most out of this experience is to participate 100%. Even when I don’t want to do the work, I am determined to do the work.

And I know what I am after – my goal? To be authenticate. Ideally, I’d like to be authentic 24/7. It’s a lofty goal. Something to strive for. And no, I don’t expect perfection. But damn, wouldn’t it be nice?

I’m going to do the best I can. I’m also going to enjoy the road trip going there – through the beautiful Rocky Mountains where I’ve enjoyed some of the most beautiful hikes of my life.

And coming back, I’ll stay in Revelstoke for a night and hike Jade Pass the next day.

Back home? I suppose it will be full speed ahead.

Right now though, I am going to stay in the present – get up at 5.30 a.m. tomorrow and drive. And trust. And throw myself completely into the process.

See you in a week or so.
