Following a person’s FB posts or blog, can skew one’s perspective/reality – folks generally only post happy pics, happy stories, motivational moments.  What is wrong with my life?  Why am I stuck?

I advocate managing an Inspiration library – fill it with pics, stories, videos & quotes which inspire YOU.

95 consecutive weekends later, I haven’t taken a break.  No excuses.  “waiting is the opposite of living”


Camping on the Frozen Arctic Sea

AMAZING pics in this photoblog!  Icebergs, breaching whales, polar bears & an Inuit guide.

Literally camping on the frozen sea in Baffin Bay, Nunavut (Canada).

After 3 flights and 10 hours of travelling, a group of nine tourists connect in Pond Inlet, a small hamlet in Nunavut, located on the northeastern shores of Baffin Island, 72° North.

Pittarak Expeditions

INSPIRING kayak adventure!  Followed this Canadian team of 4 all summer on FB.  They successfully completed their journey across Baffin Island on September 19th.

Pittarak Expeditions, comprised of Erik Boomer, Sarah McNair-Landry, Eric McNair-Landry and Kate Breen, completed a 65 day journey across Baffin Island, the 5th largest island in the world. Not only did they kayak the 1,000 km across the island, they kayaked in traditional Inuit kayaks they made themselves!

Love letter to Colorado: Thank you for bringing me home

Whereas my writing is limited to caps, action superlatives & exclamation marks, Robin Enright pens in full sentences Colorado-evoked emotions carbon-copied in my heart.  Robin emigrated to Boulder from Massachusetts; I moved from New York/CT.

Follow my 6-degrees of separation — this article was written by Ashton’s Tom’s cousin/aunt Robin 🙂












Pair who walked to Colorado 14ers expect to hit 58th summit Sunday

Ya’ll know I love to hike & LOVE LOVE my Colorado.  Wee bit jealous these guys had 10 weeks available to hike 1,300 miles & climb all of our state’s infamous 14ers.  Just means I’ve gotta dream BIGGER 🙂

The pair has been walking  for 10 weeks, starting down south in the San Luis Valley. They’ve climbed every 14,000-foot peak in Colorado as they’ve ambled north, leaving what 33-year-old Dawud called a “continuous set of footprints” and forging a first-ever through-hike of the state’s high points.


The self-supported trekkers will climb the North Inlet Trail and scramble up Longs Peak on Sunday. When they descend into Grand Lake Sunday afternoon, they will have scaled the last peak and walked more than 1,300 miles, climbing about 300,000 vertical feet in a first-of-its-kind mission. (It’s “about” 300,000 vertical because the elevation-gain feature on their GPS has maxed out and stopped counting.)
