"Our passion are the true phoenixes; when the old one is burnt out, a new one rises from its ashes."
-Johanne Wolfgang Von Goethe

This last week I lost over 12,000 photos and all my music because I made the mistake of not backing up my data. I long to look at my old photos, the digital age is both a blessing and a burden. It puts me in a funny place as I know its an opportunity to start fresh, to look at the world through a new perspective, but I can't help grieving for that which I no longer have access to.

This last weekend, an awfully large group of us went to Vedauwoo and crashed Becca's house. Bodies were all over the place, but this group is an amazing one. Each individual is a blessing, and love is contagious with us. Hugs are had on an hourly basis, and despite the failings of the day, I feel fulfilled around this group of people. We've developed a family this summer, and there is a special place in my heart for each and every one of them.

The climbing at Vedauwoo is interesting, not at all what I expected, and I happened to have the most success on dynamic problems. The setting was perfect, the leaves had turned color, and the atmosphere magical. If you haven't experienced Vedauwoo, I certainly recommend it.
