Positive vibrations yeeeah - Bob Marley sir.

Today presented good mental stimulus.

People, in the face of adversity, will always look to other people for support.

Further, people, in the face of adversity, will always look to support other people.

Thus are the daily wisdoms found on the dusty, winding, excessively-steep trails of one Grouse Grind, Vancouver's great equalizer. Today I saw tatted out steroid stars sharing gatorade with turbanized (that is like urban, except with turbans) middle-agers, an Asian lady and her gucci bag giving verbal encouragement to white boy (as she passed him,) and in general, far too many 'way to go's and 'you can do it's for one mountainside, but whatevs.

Some might ask, "How do you find such wisdom on the dusty, winding, excessively-steep trails of one Grouse Grind, Vancouver's great equalizer?" My answer to them might be, "You must look in order to see," or some other such profound-sounding nonsense. Then I'd imagine their response would be in the vicinity of "you're an effing loser."

My bad, haters. My bad. It's just that sometimes, I enjoy convincing myself just a little bit that we as humans can still show a little humanity once in a while.

Anyway, today presented good mental stimulus.

  1. The first thing I thought when I read the title was:
    "I can't remember the artist!"
    "He looks like Chris."
    "BOB MARLEY."
    But honestly, I think the guy on the left in the youtube video looks more like you.

    Anyways, way to go. (Y)

  2. Agreed.

    I was thinking about that too.
    If I did it alone I would've given up a quarter way in. (Well, I wouldn't have done it at all- but it was worth it.)
