Nature fuels creativity, as is clear spending time at the Banff Centre forBanff Mountain Film and Book Festival. Our brains need time to disconnect, to readjust to a more natural rhythm, one that begins with a sunrise over the peaks and an afternoon of alpenglow. One where the sound of a raging river is ever present. One where clean air is a given. One where you take in the natural world, not because you choose to go out on an afternoon hike, or take a weekend drive to the country.
A decade ago, I spent an entire month in the backcountry. I refused to go to sleep before seeing a shooting star.
Last weekend I was reminded of that time. There were no shooting stars, but the moon was bright, the night was clear and the red rock perfect for sleeping on.
Finally saw it on the big screen. All I have to say is, the power of the bicycle is a beautiful thing.

This week’s office looks a little something like this…
Plenty of good stuff going on right now. Em and I are officially on board at BETA, finalizing 2011 contracts at Under Solen, getting to work with cool groups like 5 Gyres and iLCP, and as usual, lots of coffee.
All in all lots of things to be thankful for this week.
“That cheesy expression that you hear… Do what you love and the rest comes. It’s true. It really works like that.”
Big ups to my good friend Allie for making this film and reminding me on a daily basis that doing what you love really is the way to go in life.
“When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.” – Arthur Conan Doyle
