You Are Life.

Topped off today literally chasing the sunset with good company, headlamps on the visors, deeply inhaling the crisp evening autumn air. The seasons are definitely changing. The trails are always the first to unwrap autumn, and tonight I was able to really pay attention while breathing and running, noticing the parallels to how we try to out-run the looming darkness of death and race towards the ever-quickly-setting sun. Chasing, chasing, chasing.

And so we stopped to enjoy the painted sky after the sun had set, and all at once, it made sense...

You are not separate from the whole. You are one with the sun, the earth, the air. You don’t have a life, you are life.
— Eckhart Tolle

Here's to early autumn sunsets, trail runs, and the big lessons that emerge from simple adventures. You are life. Remember that.
