my future tattoo

This is a drawing that represents ‘Raven’ I did while back, and it is going to be my tattoo in the near future.

According to the West Coast native symbols & meanings ‘Raven’ is the trickster and the transformer. The Raven is the symbol of knowledge and wisdom, the most important creature who can make anything happen.

When I drew this, it was suppose to be a doodle for this psychology project. My drawing/doodle was to represent who I am and who want to be. Who knew?

waiting

Patience is waiting. Not passively waiting. That is laziness. But to keep going when the going is hard and slow – that is patience.

When it comes to Vancouver’s local mountains I am a big buff of fluff on Mount Seymour. You can ski, snow board, snow blade, cross country ski, snowshoe, snow tube and toboggan, or just plain roll in the snow.. like we did, last Sunday.

what’s in my bag?

Fruit and vegetables revitalize my body and they are delightfully delicious. Therefore, I savour them. You are what you eat, right?

snow coming soon

We shall have snow..  plenty of snow..   it will be a year of plenty..

A snowy winter will lead to a good growing season. Snow melts and adds to ground moisture in the spring, helping crops off to a good start.

In theory this is sound..

Krzysztof Wielicki @ K2 Winter Odyssey

Wielicki’s presentation held @ the Centennial Theatre in North Vancouver was focused on his obsessive unsuccessful attempts to climb K2 in the winter time.

“If you wish to loose weight, climbing K2 is good, you will loose a lot of weight, you will be very slim” Wielicki said during his presentation. It is also good for people who don’t like doing laundry or don’t like to shower much, he said. You don’t have to do any of that for three to four months..

Born in Poland on 5th January, 1950, Krzysztof Wielicki was the fifth man on earth to complete the ascent of all the 8000 metre peaks in the summer time. He is a qualified engineer and is a producer and distributor of Alpine sports equipment in Poland.

Wielicki began climbing at the age of 20 in Poland, moving onto harder routes in the Alps, and later the Himalaya, making the first ever attempt of winter ascent of Mount Everest.

He has also written a book entitled: ‘Crown of Himalaya – 14 x 8000’.
