January 2010 – Week 1

I am back and now playing catch-up. After day 1000 on Dec. 29th I debated whether to stop this daily climb routine. Then 2009 became 2010 and I debated again. I have realized no matter how much I debate I cannot stop. What I have stopped doing is keeping track of what tree, where, and on what day I climbed (Although I do not keep track on paper my mind somehow remembers it all anyway). I am letting go of the details and of the urge to have to document each climb with photographs and writing (trying to). Perhaps this initial letting go will lead to a larger one.

Till then, some images and anecdotes of January 2010, week 1.
