  • Energy: drives everything. Needs to be refreshed, renewed, lifted – every day. A live, cyclical force. Find the flows, like updrafts on a ridge. Ride them, high enough so you can safely glide when they wan, finding the next updraft before gravity pulls you down.

    Some make the mistake of thinking a downdraft means the end of energy, of life, letting themselves expire into depression or something more terminal. Faith lies in knowing that another updraft will follow. The trick is knowing where to look for more, and having patience enough to find it.

    Some chase money. Some chase sex. I chase energy.
