I love shadows. A temporary imprint, a trick of light and opacity, they are also strong reminders that our existence is temporary, fleeting, and that we need to seize every single moment. They are also, well, especially in sunny Nevada, almost always with us on our explorations. Silent Companions imprinting themselves along our routes, Impossibly long caricatures at the beginnings and ends of days, hidden directly underfoot when the sun beats mercilessly high above us. Sometimes cast by moonlight, sometimes cast by the swirling lights of a dance floor. We strive to leave no impact when we are out exploring, whether in the desert or on a city bike path, and in this we can do well to emulate our shadows, who never leave anything behind. Here’s to you, shadow, may you always follow me everywhere!
This blog is dedicated to stories and ideas from our explorations. We hope you enjoy!
