Passion Party #379 - Outside the Comfort Zone

Leave behind your TV and radio
Your newspapers and magazines, too
No books allowed, they weigh too much
All you need is a clear mind
and a strong back.

For three days
you are not your job, or who you think you are
you check your ego at the trailhead
and know that everything you need to survive
is in the pack on your back.

The journey will lead you
across snow fields and streams
to a camp in the Sierras
that many will dream of but few will reach.

A stove the size of a cigarette pack
a head lamp the size of a half-dollar
a camera to capture the sunset
Traveling outside the comfort zone
facing the fear
and loving it.
