Near the end of Bridget’s appearance on Thad Russell’s Unregistered podcast, she said that when she needs to stave off the dark place, one thing she turns to is nature. That inspired me to post those Glacier photos from my birthday last year, on the way back to camp after a manly meat-heavy dinner. She also said that she turns to art, to remind her that humanity can get things right. Not coincidentally (I listen to awesome music only), this song was playing when I stopped on the side of the winding mountain road to get those photos. As you might imagine, no nihilism was experienced.
I’ve included proof: it’s playing faintly in the background of a short video clip I took of the clouds enveloping the mountaintops.
