We just wrapped up Aspen’s first season with the Pueblo Rangers. She had a positive, patient coach whose attitude kept it fun – it tickled me watching Aspen out there on the field. I created two videos shot from my perspective - see link in bio. (at Pueblo, Colorado)

“We all go through life as puzzled monkeys. The minute we think we're any more than that, we've made a grave mistake. We're just trying to gain some meaning of it all, some understanding. The only thing we can do is buy the ticket, take the ride. And offer our barbaric yawps to the world...”

“No eternal reward will forgive us now for wasting the dawn.”
Jim Morrison

“If now and then we encounter pages that explode, pages that wound and sear, that wring groans and tears and curses, know that they come from a man with his back up, a man whose only defenses left are his words and his words are always stronger than the lying, crushing weight of the world, stronger than all the racks and wheels which the cowardly invent to crush out the miracle of personality. If any man ever dared to translate all that is in his heart, to put down what is really his experience, what is truly his truth, I think then the world would go to smash, that it would be blown to smithereens and no god, no accident, no will could ever again assemble the pieces, the atoms, the indestructible elements that have gone to make up the world.”
Henry Miller
