We had our 1st Rad Community Hike today & It was soul sweet. It was great to get out into nature with some Old Friends & New Ones. It was great to be physical and to hike into a some good nature close to the city and be with kids and nature and friends and cleaning up a great place at the sametime. We picked up a lot of trash in a few hours. We filled two large plastic bags and filled 3 other backpacks with broken glass, plastic this and plastic that (a lot of plastic) and a several spray can’s from the graffiti artist. * I have to say that I always thought that graffiti artist where on the up and up but when I go hiking and I see all the trash. I just see the fear of these kids and their moments to beat up on something that can’t fight back thats how I feel when I see all the trash. I’m ok with Graffiti most of the time but if you don’t have a social conscious of picking up your trash, your mess, your art. I’m here to tell you that we just cleaned up after you and we had a great time but it felt I had a younger brother or sibling that I was cleaning up after today. That’s how it felt in a microcosm and then the big stuff was just being with the Rad Community and seeing the “US” together and sharing a great experience. When we took a break to have lunch at the bottom of the basin of the valley of the hike, I remarked to my friend Ram that it felt like we where in Europe and my buddy Gidget remarked we just need wine! And it was soul true..
the weather was crisp fall deep blue skies right after the rain…so the earth was really happy. Today was a great hike and it was great to celebrate the Rad Community by doing something Rad.
