Its The Final Countdown.

And here we go!

365 days and 7 and a half hours left.

Of freedom.

One year and its game over...

Fuck Im impatient.

I'm ready for Summer '09 to kick off.

I think next week the hikes will recommence.

You hear that Pat?

There is no going back to Edmonton now.

There are too many peaks for the taking.

And I just bought two new backroad map books.

And I will hurt you if you render them useless.

Deja Vu Anyone?

Six days later.

Another funeral.

Except this time much closer to home.

My mom's first cousin.

Maybe you were right Danielle.

2009 just might be a bad year.

Rest In Peace Bruno.

Every now and again in this life, we are thrown for a curve.
Something happens that changes our reality.
Our perception of existence alters.
And we realize how fragile all this really is.

Tragedies have a way of skewing your minds eye.
Like changing the angle of light on a prism.
You view the world around you in new colors.
What was green is now red.
What was white is now black.
And unfortunately, its always for the worse.

Its an omninous feeling.
One of something so profound, there is no way to perceive it.
Because there is no way to experience it,
Without removing yourself from this mortal coil.
Its hollow and empty,
Cold and scary.
But worst of all...

I didn't know you that well.
Never talked to you again after high school.
But I know you were a good person,
And as such, deserved a better fate.
You and your family will be in my prayers.

Rest In Peace Scott.

Morning People.

I have been a morning person all my life.
I just about wake up each day with a smile on my face.
Each morning is a new lease on life.
Some days are harder than others, sure.
Especially when I know it will be a tough work day.
But I still get out of bed feeling fresh.

The funny thing is that I dont use an alarm clock.
I never have.
I will wake up completely on my own at the time I need to.
The occasional time a couple minutes late.
But usually 10-15 minutes before.
And the wierd part is I wake up earlier,
And with less difficulty when I dont need to.

Theres just someting about being up and about before the sun rises.
To be able to sit even for a few minutes,
With no rush and hustle,
Nowhere to be and nothing to do,
And enjoy life.
Watch the sun rise.
See as it paints the sky with pastel colours.

It inspires me to face each day with vigor.
And not let lifes problems get me too down,
Or its joys too high,
But to keep an even keel.
Like the smooth ascent of the sun into the morning sky.
And know that if I give it my best shot,
I can enjoy the sunset at the end of the day.
