Leaving

I woke up naturally this morning. It was daylight out; our little valley socked in with fog, from the torrential thunderstorm overnight.  I figured it was 730 am or so, so I got up.

636 am.  Oh well.  So much for sleeping in.  But I did go to bed at 9 pm last night! 

It will be a casual morning here, take the dogs for their hike, and them mix up my two gallons of maltodextrin for MMT.  Put the rest of the gear in the vehicle, and make those last tick marks off the list.

Some of my favorite QOT from the Slim List:

“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be.
If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it.
On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.”
-Mahatma Gandhi
I do know that when I have those moments in the mountains, sometimes a breath or scent of something in the air, other times something as simple as moving over granite, a flood of chemicals hits and it feels like love.
Elusive and beyond description.
–Kelly Cordes
