Questioning the Way Forward

Attended the first 2005 meeting of the Zen Writer's Group and found I'm not alone in finding all the gray weather a bit of a challenge lately. But the fact is I usually get better photos in stormy weather. I know I also heard some great weather-inspired ideas and got some feedback on possible approaches in writing my dad's memoir.

Found while looking for something else: "If it is true that answers describe the present while questions define the future, perhaps we should be more inquisitive."

Heard on the radio there was an accident on my usual route to work, so I took a detour through the Bonneville Golf Course and Fort Douglas. This tree seemed to say "You're not going to pass me by and not take a shot are you, you with the camera who wants memorable shots, hey look at me, right here, just to your right."

Enjoyed a Sunday morning breakfast at Three Fountains. Nice view of the Wasatch, too.

The Altitude Factor

Did I actually swim better than I thought in Park City yesterday when you factor in the altitude difference? Park City is 6900 feet vs. Salt Lake's 4,330. This paragraph from Park City's tourism page also makes me wonder if it was partly the altitude and not just anxiety that made me very thirsty and somewhat nauseated yesterday.
Park City is located at 6,900 feet (2,103 meters) above sea level and rises to above 10,000 feet (3,220 meters). Some guests may experience altitude sickness. The symptoms of altitude sickness are headaches, nausea, fatigue and/or shortness of breath. Altitude sickness generally disappears within 48 hours. Altitude sickness is almost entirely preventable and can be significantly minimized when the following guidelines are followed: exercise in moderation the first few days; drink more water than usual; reduce alcohol intake - which has a greater effect at this altitude; eat food high in carbohydrates and avoid salty foods.
