  • Baking in the big white oven... impossible to get used to this inescapable heat.  Ötztaler Alps experiencing a fast changing metamorphosis to mid-summer conditions. 
Working with @bjorgselvag and @johndoyle4378 with a high spirited and enjoyable group of Alpine newbies. ☀️🏔💪

  • We agree,
you and I,
to write 
of things 
left behind,
with kindness,
not nostalgia.
To be
reminded
of the 
forgotten,
by words
that step
each from
the next
into your 
mind.
Form now
a bridge,
ephemeral,
spanning an
insufferable
emptiness,
in hopeful
recognition 
of shared
solitude.
Familiar
sounds
coax
a lost
consciousness
to follow
faded
footsteps 
to forgotten
worlds;
until
the page
is turned,
the bridge 
fades
and we 
forget,
to continue 
our lives.
