More information:
Returned to CO from a long stint in paradise (San Diego) but loving all the great climbing and other outdoor activities that Colorado has to offer.

"If your circle stays unbroken, then you're a lucky man 'cause it never, never, never has for me.
In the palace of the virgin lies the chalice of the soul and it's likely you might find the answer there."
- Ronnie James Dio "Invisible"

"With a nickel or a million I was searching all the time
for something that I never lost or left behind.
I've traded love for pennies, sold my soul for less, lost my ideals in that long tunnel of time.
I've turned inside out and around about and back and then, found myself right back where I started again."
- Jim Croce "Age"

"I never wanted to know, never wanted to see, I wasted my time 'til time wasted me,
I never wanted to go, always wanted to stay 'cause the person I am are the parts that I play.
So I ploy and I plan, and hope and I scheme to the lure of a night filled with unfinished dreams.
I'm holding on tight to a world gone astray as they charge me for years I can no longer pay."
- Savatage "When the Crowds are Gone"

"Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life."
- Prayer of St. Francis of Assisi

I thank the good Lord for the ability to climb, and this amazing, beautiful world we live in!
