Yosemite

| | Comments (0)
Was in Yosemite for 4 days and it was grand.. in more ways than one. To hike to the top of mountains and keep on 'discovering' lakes is so damn cool. It really is incredible what a human under their own locomotion can do. We would get back from a hike... look back over the hills.. find a peak in the distance and think : "We just came from there".. too strange.

A bit of a fight club moment as well.. yesterday standing at the urinal taking a whiz here at work... everything suddenly felt so foreign.. so antiseptic.. so artificial. Like when Edward Norton is back at work and all bloodied up... and everything is quiet and its true importance is revealed. The volume is just turned down.

Hiking around for 4 days in the woods... eating in the woods... shitting in the woods... pumping your water from a stream.. sleeping outdoors... seems to have had a similar effect on me. It was so much more real out there. Wind and cold and bears and mountains and water. You want to go somewhere? Strap the 50 pound pack on your back and start walking. Just go go go.

I sit still here in my cubicle (yes I work from a cubicle) and am aware of every hum, every fan, every whirr around me. It's so... repulsive. I'll adjust I'm sure. Us humans are good at that.
