I posted these words a while ago, but feel the need to repost. Our escaype community lost a great member recently.
I am an alcoholic in recovery (12-18-2015) who also suffers from depression. I understand what it feels like when your problems get so overwhelming that ending it seems like the only reasonable option. Building relationships during the good times with those that have kept me accountable when I start to isolate has been a life saver. Those people that can tell when my behavior changes for a couple days and check in are crucial. Create a network of folks that know you, the real you. This network of accountability has saved my ass numerous times when I didn’t want to reach out or tell someone how I feel. And know that it’s ok to not be ok all the time. Reach out to me if you ever need to talk 408-482-2262
Life can be hard, and everyone is just trying to do the best they know how at this growing up thing. Tell people you love them, ask others how they’re doing. If someone comes across your mind, reach out to them. That spiritual tug is real. Do something nice for someone without getting caught.
Please realize that if you are struggling, you are not alone and others truly care about you.

I haven’t been here in quite some time (this was taken over a year ago). This was my first time to glacier point and I had been shooting a little under a year at this point.
Many of my friends are going up here this week and I’m going to miss out. But I’ll be in Banff, so I’ll have to make due with the beauty up there 😍. Looking forward to Yosemite in the winter again. Considering it’s highly likely I’ll be moving to Loomis around November, I’m also looking forward to Tahoe in the winter.
