Tuesday 207

painting by Jessica Stammen

About this painting: A year ago this week I went outdoor rock climbing for the first time. I was hooked – or rather, harnessed – after a challenging morning session at Otter Cliffs in Acadia. It was best not to think too much as I was being lowered over the edge for the first time. As I experienced then, and as I have continued to experience in both life and climbing, thoughts get in the way of breath, attention, action, and trust.
