Thinking about Patrick ...
then bumped into the latest R&I mag (July 2014), with the cover story on PE. Wish the title of the article was different. Not titled well. However, the article was very well written. Very important read.

Marriage, then divorce, then depression, then alcoholism, and then worse is a too familiar dark downward spiraling experience in the world. Got to help one another.

Miss you Patrick. You are an incredible inspiration. So smooth and easy. Pure elegance on rock.

Falling down the stairs. What a way for a climber to go.

Someone could do him the favor of beefing up his English Wikipedia entry.

I don't know enough about him.

I did do so for Paul Preuss, who I do know something about.

Have at it!

I just read the Rock and Ice article. Despite the rather sensationalist title, I didn't think it sounded so outrageously tragic. The guy had a charmed period, then got down to wrestling with life like the rest of us. had some more bumps and grinds, ups and downs a serious down patch then an unfortunate stumble and its all over. If someone thinks thats spectacularly tragic then most of us are, minus the charmed period.

I've seen worse by a long shot.

If so I hope he finds the beautiful line with good pockets, with lots of exposure, and after the send; the company of friends, I know he will find many waiting in the night land.

Nice coz.
