I just had a wonderful little trip for a couple shows in Wyoming. It was a fantastic trip, playing music and seeing friends. But I also got to see my favorite mountains. Where my headwaters run and where the inspiration for the new album came from. This photo was taken on a trip there many years ago, on my second trip to the range.
Shot on slide film, it was usually weeks after a trip before you’d get the slides back from being processed and put them up on the wall. I remember seeing this shot of the glowing peaks and my heart leaping in my throat at the memory and the beauty of the place. I felt the cold, high elevation air. I felt the joy of travel in the mountains. I want all my photos to do that, and I want my songs to do that as well. For me as well as for you.
And so I keep taking photos and I keep making music. I hope to write something that I find beautiful. I hope to capture images that stir that restless search for something more than my current sense of security and normalcy. I want to inspire others to seek out their own spiritual homes, their own path to something above the mundane. But more than that, I want to keep up that search for myself.
I hope this photo and my songs make you want to GO to that place, or to embody that story, not just appreciate it. Reblogs are fantastic, but I want Re-visits. That is what I want to accomplish with this thing that is my life. Thanks for joining in. And thanks for the inspiration.
