Every week I go walking in the mountains by my house. I bring a lunch, a book, a notebook, a marker and some cans of paint. At the trail entrance is a bridge which has a tunnel under it. I walk, eat lunch, read a bit then walk back. As I pass by the tunnel I go inside and write things that came to me during my walk or quotes from what I was reading. After the tunnel is full I will throw a party in the tunnel and then make a zine with photos of the walks and art. I will be posting my progress here along the way. This is part 2 of the Mountain Tunnel series.
“Let the past go. All the old battles you’re still fighting, all your denial and defense mechanisms, all the addictions and inertia you’ve accumuilated and all the fears that bind you to them. This is going to be the hardest thing you ever live through–but let them go, let them die, have courage through the silent moments in the void as you wait, trembling, for your new life to be born. It will be.” -from the book Expect Existence.
