That Life It Is Contagious
At the risk of jinxing myself, life was already feeling kind of good before I came out here. Now? Now I feel unstoppable, able to bench press cars, ready to star in a Hollywood blockbuster. Colorado will do that to you. Well, perhaps not you, but definitely me.
This morning began with me on my parents' back porch at 7 a.m., drinking coffee and writing in 70 degree temperatures. Two hours later, I was at 10,500 feet, clambering over a 10-foot-deep snowdrift to get to a rickety bridge over a burbling stream. By 1 p.m., I was back on the porch, 70 degrees changed to 90 and coffee changed to beer.
It was all lovely. Colorado, why you gotta be so great?
