Most times I head into the wilderness with big objectives in mind -- miles to cover, peaks to climb, you get the picture. Last weekend was an exception. We lolly-gagged up and down peak, losing hours absorbed in huckleberry patches. I spent an afternoon reading in a hammock on the banks of a winding river. It was a wonderful welcome to the Bob Marshall Wilderness, and a good reminder to take life in the slow lane every once in awhile.
“Pick one thing that, if you get it done today, will move you closer to your highest goal and purpose in life. Then do that first.” Geoffrey James. I like to work on maybe one or two things per week with my horses. What was your biggest time killer from your last run? Focus on that. Don’t try to fix everything all at once. Success is achieved through incremental improvements. The prefect horse isn’t made in a day.

Never knew what FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) was until recently. I think I used to feel that back in my partying days? Who am I kidding I know I did. Recently tho it has changed from the fear of missing out on what my friends are doing to fear of missing out on what is happening out in the wilderness. It is wild what you can experience being out in the backcountry day by day... Last week I saw THOUSANDS of snow geese take off all at once... The sound was so loud I thought the entire world was crashing in around me... (check my IG story) Now I just need to learn how to prioritize my time and make sure I am giving my self guilt free time to just be out there with out thinking about has to be done.
| first let me say, congrats & i know this won't be a popular post but there is some discrepancy here. despite reports, #danicaroem was not the first openly #transgender person to hold state office, it was a #blacktranswoman named #altheagarrison . when #danica roem became one of the first openly #transgender candidates to win a seat in a state legislature, besting '#chief homophobe' & #va (#virginia ) bathroom bill author #bobmarshall it was a particularly savory win. ironically the same night, a 77-year-old woman named #althea garrison quietly lost what could have been her 15th election & just so you know, she didn’t even come close. the day after an election, there’s always a scramble to start handing out accolades but some got the exact significance of #roem ’s win wrong. again this isn’t the first #transperson to serve in a state legislature. that was garrison, decades ago. a constant minor figure in #boston politics, garrison was serving in the #massachusetts house of representatives when she was outed as trans, against her wishes by the press. she haa spent the last 2o years trying to regain the footing she lost. althea garrison was born in #georgia and transitioned in boston, after attending beauty school. she later went to #harvard & worked for a handful of state agencies, spending much of her career as a clerk in the comptroller’s office. she was described recently by #theglobe as 'boston’s most perennial of perennial candidates'. garrison, who lives in #dorchester , has run for city seats more than 14 times over a three-decade-long political career. this post is not to discredit the victory of roem or jenkins but to clear the misconception perpetuated by the #mainstreammedia . althea garrison paved the way for danica roem & #andreajenkins .
When all your horses and peoples make it back safe and you feel accomplished AF. On a side note I swear Champ has Montana snow camouflage.
MY NEW VIDEO (link in bio): Get with the WINNING TEAM, HOE! #AndreaJenkins , has been elected to the Minneapolis City Council, first trans woman of color to do so. #DanicaRoem is the first openly transgender person who has been elected and seated in a state legislature. She beat #BobMarshall who calls himself Virginia’s chief homophobe and introduced the transphobic bathroom bill. THATS THE GAG! #RemyMa ’s song “#WakeMeUp ” put me RIGHT back to bed. #FSU (along with many other universities) has a serious problem in their fraternity/sorority culture. Students at #Spelman , #Morehouse , and many other universities are exposing the culture of sexual violence & complicity using the hashtag #WeKnowWhatYouDid . New allegations have come out agains #CharlieSheen detailing his sexual violence agains #CoreyHaim . #Tyrese did NOT receive 5 million dollars from #WillSmith and #JadaSmith . SO MUCH TO TALK ABOUT, GIRLIES!
I did not realize #BobMarshall was defeated by a trans female! 🌈🌈🌈🌈🌈 I've prayed to God for years that something would happen to him. He's the delegate that also wrote the anti-gay state marriage amendment back in the early 2000's that literally made me cry as I read it because it made me feel less than human and as if my long term relationship want worthy of recognition! Bob Marshall had this coming, that hateful piece of sh@t! #Congratulations on his defeat. Too bad he didn't fall over from a heart attack when he and his Republican buddies realized all that illegal germandering around NOVA couldn't save his evil ass! I'm not a bad person, partnered for 21 years, married for 4 with a beautiful 8 year old son, no thanks to his evil vile homophobic ass ... but you made me cry and feel bad about who I was, so F*** YOU! He don't even deserve to to be called human. He's just a sad side note of an ugly part of the #CivilRights struggle!!!!! That must be a terrible feeling!
Just go jump off a bridge ... You'll feel better!! #gayswithkids#proudfamily#proudparenting#familyequalitycouncil
#ElMundoHOY : Una #mujertransexual derrocó el martes a uno de los legisladores conservadores más veteranos de #Virginia y está lista para hacer historia como la primera persona abiertamente #transexual en ser elegida para ocupar un puesto en la legislatura estatal.
La demócrata #DanicaRoem una periodista con trayectoria venció al delegado republicano #BobMarshall en la elección del martes. La contienda fue una de las más destacadas del año y captó la atención tanto nacional como internacional, así como grandes sumas de dinero al distrito norte de la Cámara de Delegados, ubicado a las afueras de la capital del país. “Esta noche los votantes eligieron a una líder transexual inteligente y orientada a las soluciones y no a un demagogo anti-LGBTQ, y enviaron un fuerte mensaje a los legisladores que están en contra de los transexuales en el país”, dijo Aisha C. Moodie-Mills, presidenta y directora general del Victory Fund en un comunicado. (Lee mas en www.hoy.com.do) #PeriódicoHOY

Metal Vocalist #DanicaRoem Becomes First Openly #Transgender State #Lawmaker
NOV 8TH, 2017 - 10:50AM Posted by wookubus 10
Democrat Danica Roem earned a seat in #Virginia ’s House of Delegates yesterday, #November 07th. While the fact that she fronts metal band #CabRideHome (see below) and now sits on a U.S. state’s legislature is certainly notable, Roem is also now the first openly transgender person ever elected to such a position in the state. 🔥She unseated 73-year-old Republican #BobMarshall with her win, who was outspoken for his various controversial viewpoints on the LBGTQ community. Marshall made headlines with his introduction of Virginia House Bill 1414, which would allow the refusal of service to people of the LBGTQ community by any public or private business licensed by the state. He also introduced House Bill 1612, known as the ‘Physical Privacy Act’, which restricted the use of certain bathrooms by transgender people.
