Six Feet to Lie Down In

"It is not by turning away from our fault lines that life suddenly takes on its full glory. No, I believe that we come to our fullness not in spite of our darkness, but in the embrace of it."

This is @natgeo photographer gordonwiltsie’s reason for why we must #ActOnClimate. What’s yours?
“…Hats off to President Obama for his vision to reduce carbon pollution by 30% from 2005 levels in the next 15 years.  Wisely, the administration is no longer talking about distant melting icecaps and vanishing polar bears, but keeping the message close to home, highlighting children with asthma caused by breathing bad air, ever-increasing droughts, killer storms, crop failures and other obvious symptoms that affect heartland Americans.  Nevertheless, my own enthusiasm also still heads straight north to the #ArcticOcean where #Inuit friends like Jayko Apak already face thinner and thinner #ice and fewer animals in the places they still hunt seals and other marine life to survive.  So much that I have loved and photographed is at stake. #ActOnClimate” @thephotosociety @protectourwinters View Larger

There are so many reasons for why we must #ActOnClimate. So inspired to see the outburst of support for action and people identifying with the cause of climate change by sharing their personal stories. Keep inspiring the masses guys.

A pretty steadfast injury to my wrists has left me unable to climb vertical rock anymore. It’s a bummer to realize I must move on from something that was such a big part of my life. Until I find a new sport outside, I’ll be thinking about this past season on my board, riding the backside of east coast hills with awesome friends. I could live in a world of only winters. #nofilter #southamericaanyone? #hellowhitewaterkayaking View Larger
