jelly legs

This morning my legs are analogous of my life; extremely tired, but still strong.  Yesterday I headed out for a 20k hike with my (photographer) friend Noah.  We bit off a bit more than we could chew.  (What’s one more little loop?)  

The whole time Noah was like a little kid (in the best sense)… “Wow, look at that!  A cloud… a cliff… a meadow”   Surely all photographers have this childish a view of the world. 

Needless to say, I’m having trouble walking today.  But the memory is already turning so beautiful.  “One step at a time… I can do that… I’ll finish this!”   I said it often on my cross Canada cycling trip in 2005.   I say it now as I await a summer break.   Noah labeled the photo; John and God chillin…   he’s a bit of a prophet…  and I hope to be doing more of that chillin soon.
