In the past week, I’ve passed through Slab City and unleashed some pint up teenage angst that’s been buried for a while. It felt good to tap into it again, and I think a part of me will always have that rebellious teenage spirit, but ultimately felt it was not the direction I wanted to focus on, and after three nights had enough of the reckless wild energy from humans rebelling against the system and craved the natural wild of the wilderness. I jumped straight onto my favorite backcountry trail in Joshua Tree National Park and spent a solo night away from all human sounds and energy, where I could recalibrate. I suppose there is a fine line between the two type of wild energies, but one of them is exhausting, and one of them is replenishing. Still, I find both necessary for the human spirit...on the journey to truth and freedom.
New small batch available today, February 9th, at 10a Pacific Time. Half of were made in Slab City and half were made in a tent in the backcountry of Joshua Tree.
