1. There’s a part of your soul that gets replenished when you go into the mountains. If you haven’t been to the mountains in a while, the effect is profound. If there’s some other activity that fills up that same part of the soul, I haven’t discovered it.
2. If I could go back in time, I would do my darnedest to be at Red Rocks on June 5, 1983 and August 15, 1995. Being there a decade or two later, during the day, watching just a few people rehearse on the stage, and explaining to your daughter that all of those strange and wonderful sounds she hears are coming from one instrument, the electric guitar . . . all that is pretty cool too, though.
3. Is it even possible to drink enough water to keep from feeling totally dry?
