Whenever you are in the moment, the hardest thing in the world is to take yourself out of it. Distraction is your friend. Distraction is your friend if only you can remember to think that you should be fine. Right now – bear with me here – I am stuck somewhere near the top of Mt. Baldy. Well, not really stuck, but not really moving that quickly. Slate has gone ahead in his own personal race to the top. Probably to beat us all there and say he was first, but possibly to just get there and start massaging coconut oil into his fiercely burned skin.
