Hello, hi, I'm Terry and I'm going to enjoy myself first



It's good to be wise when you're young
'Cause you can only be young but the once
Enjoy yourself and have lots of fun
So be glad and live life longer than you've ever done

Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think
Enjoy yourself, while you're still in the pink
The years go by, as quickly as you wink
Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself,
It's later than you think

It is what it is,eh? Lying here
waiting for the next round of needles.
But,as I told my nurse, I'll be out of
here mostly in one piece compared to those poor
little kids who spend months here with
no assurance of ever getting out.

And at least I can look at SuperTopo!
Is that why they were standing outside

oh you gals and guys,
it is exhausting stomping my melancholic boots
on your lawn.

i see here in legg's pretty post
of enjoying life,

tales of beer in meadows,
climbing trips,
swollen sandwhiches,
sunrises, blue skies,
decadent desserts,
blooming deserts..

general glee and good buzz....

though i think that i know my crew among us better than that.
the light and fluffly life is crucial to enjoyment, yes.
but the disaster aspects must bludgeon us frequently
or else we lose perspective and appreciation for the times
when we are merely free-falling towards our death.

gawdamn sometimes we have to struggle to die.
it aint a given, and it should not be.

our's genetic substance is perched precariously on
the sharp edge of domesticaion.

go club yourself.
head up a mountain under-prepared.

par down your rack.
pack beers in place of water.

earn your death and enjoy the taxing journey.

enjoy death.

t*r tried that and only the outcome
was reciprocal of it's intention....

"i was slightly off sane the other night
and upon a wild whim i stopped by the
catholic church and inquired inside
about soul court.
"excuse me?" the nice lady with totally concealed cleavage responded.

"i guess you call it confession," i confessed.

with a not-so-hospitable glance,
the lady told me that a priest would see me in 30 minutes, and to have a seat.

"thank you." i politely rebounded.
i didn't sit though,
i ran out to my rig,
dove into the riew view mirror and
proceeded to rewrite today's shadow, that being forever.
i shifted my hair-part 10 degrees towards my heart,
effectively combing over the horribly sunburned and peeling
scalpline parting my halo.

then i washed behind my eyelids.
you ever try to do this?
roll your eye garment back on itself and
scrub the raw flesh that never sees
the proper world,
yet into this your eyes peer all the while asleep,
and while dreaming within blinks,

so i figgured if i scrubbed my physical unconcious,
that being the asse end of my eyelid, then i'd be
nearer to holy.

then i slammed three coors light,
because my mom just bought me these striped summer shorts,
and i was kinda nervous about them
(im 37 and my mom still buys me shorts)

then i strolled, or rather wobbled inside
and into the dark closet i delved.

i sat there for 3 hours with
Father Cause (im not sure how to spell his name, though it was pronounced as such)

and we got into a great verbal exchange,
to be honest it wasnt much different than the banter
that you and i spill on the collar of nice shirts,

and in the end, now that i reflect back,
i do believe that i more corrupted him and his stable views,
than he steered me upon his committed stupidity.

and honestly, after our 3 hour bout,
we travelled down to the liar's bench and he bought me
3 rounds of draft.

oh the irony of salvation. "

One day we rode to top of Mt Whatever at Sugarbowl, climbed to the top, skied down to the old railroad, walked thru the chinese-constructed snow shed tunnels then squeezed out a window, skied down to the lake and walked 2 blocks to his house.

Enjoying life, go big!

No matter what problems you think you may be facing, someone else may be facing "something" harder... devastating. My girl lost her son recently, and making her smile and hearing her laugh makes my day... and I am blessed to see her daily, and then some.
This photo reminds me to smile, and that it is okay to be okay.

My niece dancing up a climbing structure in Paris.

Some four days before, she broke her foot hiking on the Olympic peninsula. The day before the planned departure the break was verified by xrays. She also got a cast and was advised to
"take it easy," but cleared for travel. Given the choice of a week of reading red wall books, watching Netflix and babysitting her sister or Paris, she chose Paris!

A new cast a few days after her return

And a weekend in Yosemite

(her three year old sister's first camping trip, btw) and off to start fifth grade today!

Keep on dancing!

Lovely photos. When I was four or five I carried one of those. It was white and heavy. It started on the back "seat" of my grandfathers bicycle. I was told not to put my feet into the wheel, but had to try. It ended with broken bones. When they finally removed the cast my mother has told that I was completely wild. I ran down the corridor and slided down the marble stairs on my stomach. I lifted my foot high above the ground for every step I took and for some days my parents were a bit concerned that I would never learn to run like other kids.

I started this thread on the heels of a horrific experience in July, which I have learned is not an isolated "incident"....I have pressed criminal charges and taken control of the situation ... proudly.

The amazing people in my life have been loyal, honest, true, and never gave up on me and my endless strength... true friendships and true love. And to new friends that make my heart THUMP... thank you. {{smiles}}

Nearly 2 months later, I realize again how wonderfully blessed I am ... Free, dancing, singing, loving, a mother to an amazing young man, strong instincts that saved my life and heart a year ago, the ability to physically move over stone, an appreciation for Life every damn day, living in the Moment, letting go of those who lied, broke promises, gave up, and had no faith in me and my resilience... I'm a survivor, and happy to allow only good people in my life.
"Under estimate me, I dare you!" ~Leggs

And now, two months later, I am happier then I have ever been .... Love surrounds us all... open yourself to it and appreciate the sunrise at the start of the day, and the setting sun at the end of the day.

To the future, which is unknown...
I am excited to greet you with open arms and an open heart.

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meaness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain all!
Even if they're a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whomever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

Tools are in the belt
I wear everyday

It doesn't weigh me down
rather
it provides balance
as I stay standing
light on my feet
as I start to fly
with wings
that were never broken.

I received an email today from a director, asking me to accept the Female Lead "Kari" in the 3 person play, "The Pavilion" by Craig Wright, and I hadn't even auditioned for the role or the play!!

I am over the MOON on this one!!! As though things couldn't get any better... THIS HAPPENS!? Thank you, Universe!

Wow Leggs. How awesome. I'm a professional audience member. Have been to eight plays since June. A friend at work just gave me tickets to CalShakes (tomorrow night). They're great tickets, and we have the same last name so no problem at Will Call. I almost saw Dead Man's Cell Phone in Ashland a few years ago.

Yes, you did, SweetChyle.

You're here. . . sharing all your beauty with us. . . and there's never been anything more right than that!

Every single one of your posts reminds me of my past.

My mom and dad lived up in Sabino Canyon for 25 years, and everytime I needed a "Dad" fix, he'd fly me in. . . and we'd end up at Mt. Lemmon. . . with him raving about the ROCK CLIMBING and THE SKIING. . . fully trying to get me to move to Tucson . . . . to be closer.

I never did it. . . and he knew I couldn't. . . but. . . there's certainly something to be said about a mogul field hovering above Tucson, eh?

I'm there with ya sista. . . continue being smart. . . and. . . by all means. . . KEEP YOUR MAGIC ALIVE!

I can vouch for the awesome climbing on the Lemmon,

Oh. . . me, too.

One time. . . many years ago, Blanchard and I packed it up and rolled, every so slowly, toward The Phoenix Bouldering Contest.

It was WINTER at Tamarack.

BIG WINTER.

Shoulder season. . . that season where you HAVE to play. . . because, if you don't. . .

YER

GONNA

DIE.

To make a very long story short. . . I will say. . . that we went to this climbing comp ready to power it.

We powered it.

We tried to mirror ourselves against it all.

We suct.

We did some stuff.

Then we packed it up and drove to Tucson to visit my mom. . . by then, my dad was a dead man.

We ended up, just as my dad woulda done. . . UP AT THE SUMMIT OF MT. LEMMON. . .

And . . . all of a sudden, Schneider appeared out of nowhere - and announced, "SOME GEEK NAMED MARK BLANCHARD WON THE THING!"?

?

HUH?


Blanchard looked Schneider square in the eye and asked, "DO YOU THINK THINK THERE'S ANOTHER MARK BLANCHARD?"

NNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

There's only one!

:-)

We ended up driving back to Mammoth, via Phoenix, to pick up all his prizes. . .

Kath, you and I need to meet in person... I feel a soul sister in my midst ... in my Universe ... thank you. ~xx

When I met my friend Marco nearly 7 years ago, we came together because of a love of photography ... He, new to Tucson, from Columbia, reached out to me as a fan of photos I had taken during that time. We met up for a drink, talked for endless hours... and these are the first words he ever wrote me:


"what do you write. that not a woman sat next to you and shared her life, but a human being. not that you found her attractive, but that there was no desire in us to trace the cliche of such pronouncements. that the deepening ooksonian twilight draped its dusty-sapphire charm gently over us while she sipped bookers and i sipped rum and coke and bookers-with-a-twisted-arm, and that she spoke about her beautiful child and her travails with reluctant lovers and i spoke about the sky falling on my head last year. do you say, this lovely human being is treating me like a human being, making me feel a man with thoughts and hands and eyes good enough to look upon and histories that have value, making me feel i matter. do you say, i embrace you, too, lovely being, your travails, your laughter, your lovers, your broken heart, your childhood histories, your dreams still waiting on your hand, your lovely lovely offspring. do you say, you both seat at the bar at 'bison witches' (only ooksonians can come up with such quirky charms), and laugh at a plate of food obviously meant for a creature the size of a cyclops, and you both take moments of unawkward silence because there is no need to hook up or say clumsy date things, but just treat each other like genderless human beings are supposed to treat each other when they both have broken hearts. with kindness. with unadorned laughter. with true warmth. with sincere embraces. with thoughtfulness. who do you say thank you to when you come home with the feeling that a goddess has just held you for hours without any need other than to hold you for hours and you sleep a man again in a sea of tranquility."... April 12 2006. 8:39am ...*Marco*

He has always been an incredible writer...

We have remained the closest of friends ever since.

I'd like to say time is passing too quickly, but I'd rather say time is passing at the pace in which it is intended.

With that said, I shall simply share recent photos, and invite you to do the same! :)

Leggs do you know Jerry Jeff Walker?

HE did an album set back in the day - "A Man Must Carry On." A big part of that album was dedicated to Luckenbach's cowboy poet, Hondo Crouch. "He sang songs in Spanish and smiled in every language."

We lived on Lower Twin Lake and she really needed to know how to swim. . . so I took her up to Horseshoe Lake (Upper Lakes Basin) at 9,100 feet (better beach than Twin). . . and we worked and worked and worked. . . it took me finally putting on my wetsuit and going in the water. . . I had a tennis ball (she was a good retriever - on land) and I'd throw it out in the water - then swim out and get it. . . she started getting the idea and would walk out in the water - but as soon as it got too deep to touch, she'd bound back to shore and bark and bark and bark.

SOOOOOOO. . . I'd go do it again. . .

FINALLY she went one step beyond her "touching" zone. . . I was out in the water coaching her. . . and when the weightlessness of it finally sunk in, I SWEAR THAT DOG SMILED AT ME. . .

The rest is history!

I was gonna delete all those cigarette ads except for the first one, but it looks like they might be catching on.

Chesterfield must have made a mighty fine product, everybody seemed to smoke them.

I like vintage ads and you should IMAGINE that the person modeling in that particular shot is yourself and go out and MAKE IT HAPPEN.

By the way, it takes only the most casual observation to seee that there is a resemblance between that model in the painting and your lovely self.

Speaking for myself and hopefully for the kontrolleur, I would love to hear your singing voice as well, so go out and make that happen, too.

It would endear you to us even more. Keep up this lively thread, too.

You mean you are not charmed by my endless photos of clouds, sunsets, me being goofy with friends, hiking and such?! *gasp!*

When you say the woman in the painting, are you referring to the Vintage Cig ad with the backless dress, or the girl in the tree with red shoes? (Tree girl is me)

I DO have my music out there... just not sure how to share HERE.

I have shared some music with Dingus... perhaps he could "vouch" for my skills?!
I am trying to figure out ways to make my original music available to a wider audience, besides live performances and stuff posted on YouTube. :)

"Well this is just a simple song
To say what you done
I told you about all those fears
And away they did run
You sure must be strong
And you feel like an ocean
Being warmed by the sun"



An all time favorite artist... Bill Withers...

I pulled a GOOG (rhymes with spooge) and tried to find a new CD player. . . well. . .Blanchard tells me CD players are just about things of the past. . . new MacDaddy's don't even come with them. . . so. . . why buy a new one, eh?

Then, like the loose board in the floor, it hit me. . . my old LApple (iBook G4) that's way too slow for much of anything has a CD slot.

SO. . . I dug out my old "Realistic" battery speakers from 1985 (they were Blanchard's and my stereo - connected to my 1985 SportsWalkman) and. . . HERE WE GO:

The sharp sliver of the moon
dances on the edge of pink clouds
as wind lifts long curls
around my neck, bare shoulders
and naked face.

The sharp sliver of the moon
dances by itself
as sunset clouds disappear
behind desert mountains
my home
for now.

The sharp sliver of the moon
waits patiently
for raging stars to join the dance
as we lift eyes to the sky
in utter wonder at the unknown.

The sharp sliver of the moon
doesn’t remind me of you
It reminds me to dance
to be free
to be me
Skinny legged Survivor
and all.

The sharp sliver of the moon
reminds me
of the independent characteristics
I possess…
I am never alone
despite that independent nature
I’m so proud of.

Kath! What a beauty!! My smile is endless ... Thank you for the continued Joy!!

When I learned to ski, I started with downhill at Sugar Bowl; at one point in my downhill days, I actually skied RIGHT into a tree. Scary ass sh#t. THEN I was exposed to cross country skiing, and I fell in love again. Fond memories: Cross country skiing in Yosemite and Tahoe.

Ahhhh, I miss home. Cannot wait to move!!!!

~love you, lady bug!

Edit: Of COURSE she RIPPED! <3 Love it!

The sun has started it's brilliant rise here in the desert... the colors excite me. "Love Muffin" Cafe. Kinda perfect. :)

No travels out of town for me this weekend, as I will be attending the wedding of two of my favorite people...
