Well, its been two months since I decked out in the UK breaking the talus bone in my foot.  I'd be lying if I said that the last couple months has been easy- but that's life, and I appreciate the lows as well as the highs.

 

If anything, the downtime has given me a renewed appreciation for how much I love rock climbing:  being outside, the focus, the intensity and the simple meditative act of moving on rock.

Dean Potter sent me a get-well email simply entitled "Fire".  When I received the message, I was a little confused of what the title meant.  But, after a couple months of doing next to nothing, the fire inside if burning bright indeed.

Here's a shot of my loyal dog Elsa, a couple fresh pairs of boots, my faithful crutches and the swollen foot.

I hope everyone out there is having a great spring :)
