Hope all of you enjoyed the holiday season. If enjoyed is not the right word, hope you survived and had some great chocolate and found a few quite moments of reflection here and there. As much as I love having the kids around, the tree up, family ski trips, I really love getting back to some sort of routine and digging into the new year and new projects. I have so many things that I am excited about doing in 2015. New workshop offerings, trips to new countries, the opportunity to challenge my self and lose the 5lbs that came from I know not where… well, ok, maybe not super excited about that part, but I do love to run and bike and ultimately I don’t worry about it much. Life is to damn short to fret about your weight. That is why god invented sweat pants!
Enough about me, there are a couple of things that affect you, if you so desire. I am excited to be involved with Crossroads workshops/Santa Fe and I am leading a workshop in Sitka Alaska in Aug. This photo was taken in Sitka from a high ridge at sunset last summer, and I fell in love with the place. The landscape, the wildlife, the forests, the people – all of it. Pop over to my workshop section if you are interested in the details. I will be ably assisted by David Middleton, whom some of you know, and some of you love. As for the rest of you? Bring chocolate to tame the beast. We will be working with the Sitka Concervation Society.
Another new offering is my “Backyard Workshop” series which I am teaching with my pal Jeff Wendorff. We are doing short and sweet days, right here in my back yard. More on my workshops page.
I am also heading to Nicaragua for the first time in January, as well returning to Kenya. Stay tuned for those stories. I am still compiling my list of favorite reads. You all added so many titles to the list it may take me the better part of the year to get through it all. The Boys in the Boat is holding on in the lead spot…..
Hope to see you all along the way somewhere in 2015!
