Burst at the seams, Be what you dream.
My studio = The Blue Ridge Mountains.

"I wanna ask all the questions with answers we'll never know. I wanna find my faith in records from long ago. I wanna set fear on fire and give dreaming a fair shot, And never give up whether anybody cares or not." -John Moreland I've got lots of time on the road coming up and I'm a huge fan of talented songwriters, share one or two of your favorites with me if you don't mind!

We head lower and lower in elevation with hopes of catching the last of the leaves. Part of me can't wait til they're gone so I can finally relax for awhile. Lord knows I need it. I've got movement in my fingers but my thumb still isn't giving me much. On the bright side I opened a beer with my toes yesterday :P

Thanks for the love friends, surgery seems to have went well. I'm in a lot of pain but keeping on the positive side. I've still got my legs so I can still get out and hike with my pups! It's my left hand (I'm a lefty) BUT my right is my shutter hand so once the pain goes down a bit I'll be trying to get out and capture some of that last bit of fall color!

Yesterday started out great, ended up not so great. My new sport I love so much bit back. I got my foot caught and fell weird in my backyard. Doc says I broke my wrist in about 13 places. Definitely the most painful thing ive experienced. They are putting me under for surgery soon. I hear I'm gonna wake up with some bling! Life has set backs, and bad times. I have learned that as shitty as you may feel in a rough patch, it's not going to last forever. Big big thanks to all the Staff at Haywood Regional for being so wonderful, and a bigger thanks to the amazing friends who came to visit. Fingers crossed this all goes well!

Sunday night. We climbed and climbed, I thought about those twinkling city lights below us and how many people were warm in their beds, fast asleep. The wind was whipping and my legs were burning, we had to move quick and keep our body temps up. I focused on the wildness around us. We cheered at every trail sign we passed. We lit up when we climbed that final ridge, all the trees slowly disappeared and the forest canopy was replaced with a clear sky of stars. The wind became scary, frozen trees branches crashed around us, and giant old hemlocks creeked and cracked. We began to worry we may have missed a turn...I'll never forget how happy I was to see the tower shining in the moonlight, or how grateful we were to be out of the wind. It was below zero inside but we were home. It seemed like my eyes were closed for only a few seconds and the sun was rising. I could go on forever writing about everything I felt but it still wouldn't convey the wonderfulness of this trip. So this picture is for @bakertownusa , I hope that when he looks at it, it takes him back. Surely one for the books.
