“All kinds of things happen in the woods.”

Bob Ross

“It's not the load that breaks you down. It's the way you carry it.”

C.S. Lewis

“When I was shaking out at the hueco, I didn’t have any running thoughts aside from what is happening in that present moment: how my body feels, what my breathing is like, just how I’m feeling right then. I definitely felt pumped and my fingers were cold. I had those thoughts, but more as statement of fact and not a worried ‘Oh no, I’m pumped!’ There was no emotion whatsoever; it was super-mechanical. I turned into this machine."
