What 2015 really means.
The new year, as I expressed in one of my last blog posts, isn’t just about hiking the Continental Divide Trail in 2015, it’s part of a progression I have come to see as normal. Work, hike, study, hike, work, hike, work, work, work, hike, hike.
Yes, my resume to some seems scattered and patchy…and some might see that as flighty and unreliable…but if you ask me, everything I’ve done since college has had a logical progress based on what I’m passionate about.
Summed up? new experiences, creativity, knowledge, wilderness, optimism, people, passion.
And seeking that has taken different forms: long distance hiking, writing, design, travel, volunteerism, graduate school, real jobs.
But at the core of my progression from Peace Corps to hiking to museum work to grad school to a design job, back to hiking, trail crew, hiking, wilderness therapy, hiking and now a sweet job as the editor of a local arts magazine (and then some more hiking), has been that quest to learn something new, to see a new place, and have a new experience; it has always been a progression.
2015 means continuing the progression.
And I can’t wait to find out what I’ll get up to next!
