last post of the year

January 1, 2012

Spent the last day of 2011 driving around the Oregon country side with RU. We took the long way out to Oxbow Park, which ended up being closed, and then took the very long way back, via the Gorge and Bull Run. Not much walking or hiking because RU’s foot is still fucked up, but still a nice day and a nice way to end the year.

I don’t have resolutions for 2012, as much as I have some wishes and intentions, and most of those are about what Joseph Campbell calls the experience of being alive. Here’s his full quote from the Power of Myth:

People say that what we’re all seeking is a meaning for life. I don’t think that’s what we’re really seeking. I think that what we’re seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances within our innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive.

Here’s to everyone feeling some rapture in 2012.
