Samuel Elias  Climber. Skier. Traveler. Fun haver. Human being in process. @thenorthface @blackdiamond @scarpana

I wish I was better at being present in the moment. I wish I could better accept myself and accept everything as it is. I get distracted. I get emotional. I analyze and problem solve. I think and think and think. And then I think "I" am my thoughts. But, in these moments I can not think. I can only breathe and move and be. Climbing can sometimes be much to do about what looks like almost nothing, but turns out to be just about everything. It's these moments when I am not my thoughts, and "I" become just a process/potential/interconnectedness/relationality. Climbing has always offered me this perspective. In that, it's sacred. @jthesenga on the belay. @joekinder on the camera. (Some words and inspiration from @danharris @10percent Happier podcast with Jon Kabat-Zinn)

If you bolt it, they will come. @joekinder at it again to bring the routes to the people. This place has been a home to us both through the years.
