only you can choose to be happy or not
the problem is most people don't recognize it as a choice

Early to Sleep, Early to Rise

Early to Sleep, Early to Rise
I fell asleep last night, mostly because it was so cold in my house. I couldn't justify turning the heater on, so I just went to sleep at around 8 PM. Somehow it wasn't difficult after a day full of slacklining and climbing. The result was waking up naturally before dawn and watching as the light slowly got brighter. My window faces West, and this is what I saw.

Slacklining in Golden Gate Park

Back Camera

Today Lauren (one of my roommates and friends) was getting jittery for some slackline. A few weeks ago she bought 110' of webbing and has been going nuts with it ever since. Here are a few pictures of us trying our feet at slacklining. She's much better at it than I am, but we both have some work to do...

take the ashes of the burned diseased
feed them to the flowers
and the flowers to the bees
they'll make the honey for my tea

Surfed Ocean Beach in the Fog

Surfed Ocean Beach in the Fog
I decided that with an odd schedule today, I should have time for a quick surf session. Ocean beach was much friendlier than usual today. Waves were generally waist to head high, and with a good strong push, making it easier to get on.

Motorcycle to Art’s Cafe

Motorcycle to Art’s Cafe
This was my first test of time lapse photography taking pictures every 2 seconds with my helmet mounted GoPro camera. It didn't come out too poorly for a first try, I'd say I learned a few things. Time Lapse Test

On the way home.

Back Camera
I was on my way back to my house from over in the mission, when I noticed that the sun was about to set, and that Twin Peaks stood between me and my house. I was exhausted at the time, but immediately flipped into moth mode when the sky started to turn orange, and I rode straight up the hill to Twin Peaks. This is some of what I saw.
