#10 Blowed Our Mind!

Posted on 18/11/2017 in mountain by

The origin of Mingus mountain’s name is murky. Research has found three different stories explaining its etymology. In her foreword to the 2004 edition of Mircea Eliade’s Shamanism, Wendy Doniger states that, ‘…myths (and, to a great extent, rituals) retold and reenacted in the present transport the worshipper back to the world of origins, the world of events that took place in illo tempore, in that time”.’³ There is, in other words, a rupture in everyday, linear time and its replacement with the ‘supratemporal’. This seems especially valid for describing highly formalised rituals that concern intrinsic aspects of existence – like death. While the wake had begun the rent in the ordinary, three gagaku musicians at the funeral itself (two bamboo flutes, one shō, the phoenix-harmonica) ripped it right open.

Another important role that bikes offer is the recreational role which includes activities like touring, mountain biking and sports. On …

What else? Most of the logo t-shirts are out of stock and I’m ordering more. Soon. Not as many color options. I’ve got a new logo for a t-shirt that’s going to be rad. And I’ve got a design for a hoody that going to be equally great because Fall’s coming. I received today a big fill-in order for jerseys in both the two styles – lots of long sleeve thermal jerseys, club cut short sleeves, and race cut short sleeves. And shorts in bib style and non-bib.

We will start by looking at the performances that this …

All But My Life by Gerda Weissman: a Polish Jewish woman loses her family in the Holocaust and survived against all odds. Her story is important. She details how she survived and it’s a harrowing experience. But the book was a little too long and drawn out. It has a surprisingly happy ending.

A Blog About Our Common Life

Here is a journey I make each day. Time flows on this side of eternity. I have aged as gracefully as reasonable as can be be expected, and yet feel not a day older in my mind. As I begin a life in the Smoky Mountains I hope you will share my journey as well. Now, everybody runs, but back when I started, it was still sort of unusual. People called it jogging. They wore sweatbands. Guys wore really short shorts. I owned a Goretex suit of a shiny silver material that I wore in winter, a coat and pants. I probably looked like a Martian. But it was fun.

In its fullest sense, pilgrimage entails a long journey in search of qualities of moral or spiritual significance, a journey across both outer physical and inner spiritual landscapes. Pilgrims separate themselves from home and familiars, maybe joining a group of …

They still produce large crops of fruit but are subject to cool spring freezes which prevent them from producing. Ive had a chance to sample from most of these orchards through the years and all the apples are excellent tasting.

The Institute’s education model that combines academic learning with community building was developed in our Appalachian program and has been exported to other mountain regions. Over the decades, our courses have ranged from experiential learning trips and teacher training to field trips that take learning beyond the classroom into mountain wilderness areas. …
