Those of you who know me, know I have a few past-times that are challenging, some consider a bit risky.
They require focus, conviction, and self-discipline.
I’ve learned that running long distances, for me, means there is no wall to hit, one builds a base, and stopping and starting even for a ‘break’ never worked.
There are many routes to a summit, if one is blocked, there are others, and the summit is only half the climb.
There is no safe down-climbing in ice climbing not retreat, getting gripped by fear will kill you.
I don’t have a choice here. I am not stopping,
I am going to forge ahead.
I am going to spend time listening closer to people in the district and others in larger Oregon Senate district.
There is a different route I am working toward. I hope you will stay with me.
