My master's words were always with me, especially in moments like this. "Magic is all around us. Always has been. But the Mundane have been taught to ignore it, to look right past it." That must be why they would tear down the unicorn's forest. #vss #ThePush

"I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy," I tell my husband, preparing to check my blood. The insulin injection hits a nerve, causes cramps and nausea. "Nevermind. Totally would." #vss #ThePush

I went to an REI for the first time. And what do buy? Books. Freakin books. And a map. Guess it’s time to get lost. #tommycaldwell #thepush #thedawnwall #hikingcolorado #allthebooksinstagram.com/p/Bwm441UnS4L/…
