Can you see it?
The worst is over.
The monsters in my head are scared of love.

Fallen people, listen up.
It’s never too late to change your luck.

So don’t let them steal your light–
don’t let them break your stride.
There’s light on the other side,
and you’ll see all the raindrops falling behind–

it’s a revolution. ☀

SINCE 1974, federal relocation policy has forced 14,000 Dine’ (Navajo) people from their ancestral homeland in Arizona. This genocidal policy was crafted by government agents and energy company representatives in order to gain access to the mineral resources of Black Mesa – billions of tons of coal, uranium and natural gas.

For over 30 years, traditional Dine’ at Black Mesa have lived in resistance, steadfastly refusing to relocate as strip-mines rip apart their sacred lands and generating plants poison the desert air.

This is a 3 shot panorama.
The Anguille Mountains are part of the Long Range Mountains that run along the west coast of Newfoundland.
I’m sure this is a popular place to stop for photos, since there is a big parking lot along the highway. The strange thing is that there is no stores or buildings to warrant building the parking lot. Perhaps it is meant for RV parking, since that how it’s most commonly used. (aside from a good place to pull over for photos) I slept here on my last night in Newfoundland and woke up to an amazing sunrise over these mountains. It will be a while before I get around to uploading those photos.
Here’s my blog entry for this day of the trip, I’ll be referring to them when I write about the photos, in hopes that they help my poor memory.

People think they can dial up an adventure.

They buy a rucksack and go hitchhiking across Europe.

Big whoopee.

That’s no adventure. That’s avoiding your responsibilities and thinking how cool you are.

Read all the stories. No adventure starts out with somebody buying a rucksack and going in search of an adventure.

Adventures come out of nowhere and nail someone who has something else in mind.

Luke Skywalker says, “Not me. I got a life.”

Moses says, “Not me. Take Aaron.”

Adventure is the last thing on a hero’s mind.

Even Indiana Jones isn’t after adventure. He’s after treasure: “Fortune and glory, Kid. Fortune and glory.” Adventure tracks him down.

That’s the way it is with adventure. It looks you up, and says, “Let’s go.”

The people with the rucksacks hitchhiking across Europe looking for adventure, miss the adventure that is looking for them back home at the place they used to work.
