A Walk – Rainer Maria Rilke

My eyes already touch the sunny hill,
going far ahead of the road I have begun.
So we are grasped by what we cannot grasp;
it has inner light, even from a distance-

and it charges us, even if we do not reach it,
into something else, which, hardly sensing it,
we already are; a gesture waves us on
answering our own wave…
but what we feel is the wind in our faces.

Thoughts and prayers for Japan

I hope the people of Japan can go back to doing this sooner than later. Thoughts and prayers are with them all.

Merry Christmas!

A day late, but the joy still lingers. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Morning Inspiration – Birthright

My morning inspiration.

Golazo Ahora

Last night, I had the incredible opportunity to hang out with the crew from the soccer start-up Golazo as they made an appearance at the Sounders FC vs. Chivas match in Seattle. This team emanates passion and energy. They love soccer, and that is apparent in everything they are doing. Golazo’s appearance last night featured 200 Golazo logos tagged on sidewalks around Qwest stadium, a street team handing out game posters and the video above was projected on a building outside of the stadium. A pretty awesome appearance if I do say so myself. Go like them on Facebook to follow the amazing story of an awesome brand.

For the past two weeks, Pretty Lights has been my go to artist for working, running or just getting from place to place.

Go download his albums and make a donation so he can keep creating magical beats.
