jeffrey’s bay, south africa. may 2009.
i just went on donald miller’s blog. i scrolled down the left side topic reel and close to the bottom read, “stuff that mattered then.”
i didn’t even click on it. i just stared at the title and thought about how rad it is that that even exists. stuff that mattered then. that the things that have broken our souls or put a stick in our spokes or even ruined half an hour don’t have to exist anymore. they don’t waft through today’s minutes.
this picture is the epitome of my life backpacking. out of it has grown what matters to me now.
