Standing at the kitchen sink, that’s when it hit me. I finally understood what it means to live off the land. A year ago, while driving back to the Lower 48 from Alaska, I passed through a tiny corner of the Yukon Territory. An area roughly the size of California, its total population is 38,000. Never in my life had I seen a place so wild, so unadulterated…
The last seven months have been a journey. All the elements of a story and I have been wanting to share writing about it—it’s not time yet but maybe soon.
Due to their agile, lightweight design, gliders can land in places most planes can’t. For example, having encountered a paucity of lift, it is not uncommon for a pilot to simply cut her losses, pick a good spot, and touch down in a grassy field. We call this “landing out.”
I taped it to my MacBook. Over the past year, only two mantras have claimed this choice piece of real estate: Defeat resistance, and now, Break trail. Every day when I get to the office, I see these words.
In the height of summer, the air is warm and redolent with memories of the past. The sun rains down the energy of fire upon the world. Everything is crisp, bright, sometimes dry, and always full of light. The heat makes me feel closer to all the feels. Years upon years of it pressed against each other like layers of sediment.
I've started taking Alexander Technique lessons. It is a way of learning how to move more mindfully and inhabit the body with greater ease.
