Refinement

So here we are again, the end of another year. What a strange one indeed. I surely didn’t see this one coming: Pandemic, telecommuting, son’s illness, and much, much more. It’s been tough at times. But what they tell you about the fire, it’s true. It refines gold! There’s a lot of people in today’s society going through refinement. For me, refinement has resulted in some totally unexpected enlightenment. I am grateful to begin 2021 with hope.

I’ll end the last post of 2020 with my last hike of 2020, way back on November 30 with my good friend Kelly. I was on an extended fast that day, and I honestly didn’t think that it would be a problem. And it wasn’t, but it surely wiped me out more than normal. What a beautiful day and wonderful company climbing up San Juan Trail to Cocktail Rock. A little over 13 miles.

What a gift! I hope to have more in 2021.

Happy New Year!
