My perspective comes from somewhat out on the edge in many ways. I live on the fringe of the wilds here on the outskirts of Squamish BC, and my backyard receives quite a bit of bear traffic, real ones, not just the market kind like me. My wife and I spend most of our free time in the mountains, ski mountaineering in the winter and climbing in the summer.
I have co-founded, managed, and sold a couple of reasonably successful businesses including The Edge Climbing Centre, one of North America’s first major indoor climbing gyms. I have also co-owned and managed a manufacturing and export business.
Although I don’t own a TV I watched the US congressional hearings that dealt with the financial crisis through live feeds on CNN on line. I can’t imagine any reality show that could be more riveting than this. And scary. Anyone who believes the media has overblown the severity of the financial crisis needs to watch this stuff. This is real news, unfiltered.
I have spent significant time in the last couple of years, as I also did in my younger years, in the Himalayas, sleeping in the open, or staying with villagers who have no plumbing, central heating, or even furniture as we think of it. I believe I need to keep doing this as it keeps me grounded and it gives me persecutive on the crazy consumerist society I come from.
The photo of me was taken after a week in the mountains, sunburnt, unshaven and happy.
