Birthday away

Since birthdays tend to be days when you gather all your good friends around you, a birthday away really drives home how little home I have. Now I'm learning first hand that traveling isn't some skeleton key to coffers of pure joy and the pendulum of happiness and misery swings just as freely in other countries as in your own. I knew all of this before my departure, but only as empty facts, now I'm relearning it.

Last nights in Boulder


I thought I'd throw this pic up of me and my buddy lou bout to do some pull ups. See you in Thailand bro :)
In the spirit of reading Lord of the Rings, here is a short poem I (or song, if you wish) that I wrote:

Chased the sunset to the other side;
an ocean traversed in a flying stride.
To a foreign city where my travels begin
and I can live like a kid again.
