I Won’t Take The Easy Road…

I don’t want to wait anymore; I’m tired of looking for answers
Take me some place where there’s music and there’s laughter
I don’t know if I’m scared of dying, but I’m scared of living too fast, too slow
Regret, remorse, hold on – oh no – I’ve got to go
There’s no starting over, no new beginnings, time races on
And you’ve just gotta keep on keeping on
Gotta keep on going, looking straight out on the road
Can’t worry ’bout what’s behind you or what’s coming for you further up the road
I try not to hold on to what is gone, I try to do right what is wrong
I try to keep on keeping on
Yeah I just keep on keeping on

Have questions about my thruhike?

Want to collaborate for the greater good to promote the outdoors?

Maybe send me some food and gear?

Oh, you’d love a few prints of the photos I’ve taken!

Whatever the reason, let’s chat it up and get things cooking. The more involved I can make myself within the outdoor community and industry, the more we can get folks reconnecting with Nature; both in education and activities.

If you’re an outdoor company, research program, organisation (etc) looking to affiliate your brand with my adventures, I’d love to hear from you and create something amazing.

Panel 5

You have to regard yourself as a cloud, in the flesh, because you see clouds never make mistakes…

“Did you ever see a cloud that was misshapen? Did you ever see a badly designed wave? Heh, no they always do the right thing.

But if you will treat yourself for awhile as a cloud, a wave, and realize that you can’t make a mistake, whatever you do. Because even if you do something that seems to be totally disastrous, it all come out in the wash somehow or other.

Then through this capacity you will develop a kind of confidence, and through confidence you will be able to trust your own intuition.

But this is the middle way of knowing it has nothing to do with your decision to do this or not, whether you decide that you can’t make a mistake or don’t decide it – it is true anyway – that you are like cloud and water.

And through that realisation without overcompensating in the other direction, you will come to the point where you begin to be on good terms with your own being and to be able to trust your own brain.”

— Alan Watts
