It’s We Or Nothing

I cringe every time I hear the words “our people“. It’s we or nothing. I cringe every time I hear “The _____ ‘s”. It’s we or nothing. There’s only one special interest group and that is the interest of humanity. No subdivisions no separations. It’s we or nothing. -Sifu Z

Night Hiking Journal 11/1/22

The 1st major snow storm arrives on que. 24* with 100mph wind gusts. Post holing knee deep in some areas. Hiking into the wind with no glasses. Icicles stabbing into my eyeballs. Duely noted. 12 miles tonite. Feeling strong.

Mass Marginalization = Mass Chaos

Personal balance is a highly dynamic challenge in our modern times. Once again the curtains have been pulled on the land of Oz. Losers last stand creates a tempting pot of gold to lure us back into the caves. Alas possession is threatened by freedom. The answers are available to all – if your dog can’t accompany you through Pearly Gates, keep walkin’. (Twilight Zone reference)

Creature of the Night

Night hiking provides some of the most spectacular views I’ve ever witnessed. The bears, porcupine, coyote and fox are all your fellow creatures. The stars, planets, galaxies and universes are in plane sight. The air is crisp like no other part of the day. Oh the Wing Chun of it all. “Siu Nim Tao!” -Sifu Z

The Vortex of Hell

I am seemingly at the vortex of hell. The Sierra’s are staying at about 88* while the surrounding areas are literally on fire. The most current Mosquito Fire is less than 2 hours west of my location. The winds are blowing to the Northeast so the smoke is not yet effecting our area. However the sky is a bit hazy with smoke and a slight wind change could alter air quality for the worse.

The nearby river is a good place to stay cool during times like these. I make sure Luna stays in the shallow end. She is not a buoyant dog. I hope you all are finding a way to stay cool and keeping out of harms way. A challange for us all. Aloha – Sifu Z n Luna
