Quest: Minimal Ambient in Nature #6

I would not be able to tell what my lifelong quest is about even when asked. Sometimes it can be felt in the moments like this, when running water becomes time, when genetic geometry is representing itself as separate species, yet the process of life and death tells a story that nothing lasts. The Nature itself touches my body and soul then. And life continues.

Symbiosis: Minimal Ambient in Nature #5

Symbiosis is a close and long-term biological interaction between two different biological organisms. It forms between various species of trees and fungi, plants and insects, humans and gut bacteria. This is a very deep and fascinating topic.

Epic Montana Fly Fishing Adventure "Journey On" (Documentary)

This is a documentary film created by a couple who decided to go explore their country.

I loved this film so much because it is well produced, full of amazing fly fishing moments and it shows how we can plan an extended vacation time to go explore our own lands that are full of wild magic if you dare to seek it.

Climbing a 3,200-Year-Old Giant Sequoia Tree

Global deforestation is a giant problem. Almost everyone agrees that it must be solved as soon as possible. But almost no one seems to know how to do that.

National Geographic writes:

"Deforestation is clearing Earth's forests on a massive scale, often resulting in damage to the quality of the land. Forests still cover about 30 percent of the world’s land area, but swaths half the size of England are lost each year."

"The world’s rain forests could completely vanish in a hundred years at the current rate of deforestation."

A Look Inside Tommy Caldwell’s Gear Shed

Rock climbing is a very special sport to me because it means determination, courage, hard work and strategic thinking. It also means a lot of time in nature.

It has a lot of similarities to start-ups. And as I am more a startup guy than a climber, connecting those two things makes life a lot richer.

How to Make Extra Time for Experimental Projects Using Precisely Engineered Morning Routines

It was 5:55 AM. My alarm clock rang, as it always does at this time of day. I got up quietly and started executing a very specific set of actions: I went to the kitchen, turned on the kettle, went to the bathroom, came back to the kitchen and poured myself a Pu-erh tea with boiled water. Then I sat down to meditate for 20 minutes using Transcendental Meditation technique that I practice since 2011.

After meditation, I got my tea from the kitchen, turned on a relaxing music track on my headphones, and started journaling. It's not easy to describe that amazing feeling that comes when you connect the vibes of an early morning, good tea, beautiful music, and writing about things that matter.
