We had such an amazing time this morning visiting Wallaby Street Early Learning Centre for the first show of our 2017 Eco Bug tour! The children had a great time dancing with Drip Drop and Roger the Recycling Truck, and learning about the three R's - Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Litter Bug, Wriggle Worm and the hungry Sea Turtle even stopped by to say hello 🐢🐞🌻🌈☀️
Been thinking about the creative process, reading this book about being creative and how to handle it. It’s definitely something you have to learn how to handle. I’ve got to this place Elizabeth Gilbert calls ‘stubborn gladness’ — where you just doggedly keep going every day, both prioritizing it and expecting it never to work out. It’s a weird place between optimism and total hopelessness, ruled by pure stubbornness, and featuring friends and family periodically asking, “You’re STILL writing that same book?” As annoying as it sounds, it’s really not the goal (though I have goals for sure) — it’s the journey. That’s why I write everyday, and that’s why imma keep writing every day. 💪💪
#RoamMoment - Skiing the Everest Rail Slide! Back in 2011, when I was working for @MountainTrip as a climbing guide on Everest, my fellow guide @Nealbeidleman and I climbed up the Lhotse Face to try and ski it. After our acclimatization day at and above Camp III, we sent our client down with the Sherpa crew and traversed out onto the face for one of the best ski descents of our lives. After almost 2000’ of descent we rappelled across the huge bergshrund at the bottom of the face and came across the first of many dozens of ladders that cover crevasses on the Khumbu Glacier, providing safer passage. I looked at this one and it just made sense to ski it. Was it the first Everest Rail Slide? I’m not sure but it was hilarious. >> Video and caption from legendary skier Chris Davenport @steepskiing.⠀
