“2012 is the Year of Voices. I am vowing to follow the voice of my heart and the voice of my mind this year. It will be a year of listening as well as doing. It is for certain to be an adventure.” — from The Year of Voices
I found a great source of inspiration on my travels in the form of mountains: viewing the Cascades and Rainier from the Puget Sound, climbing Mt. Pinnacle and realizing I was stronger than the last time I climbed it, driving through the Sandias, Picacho Peak and Texas Canyon alone with my thoughts, my feelings: the Voices. They echoed profoundly through and from them. They said, “Keep going.”
Here is the soundtrack to (at least, the first half of) my Year of Voices.
