Killing Mother Nature cuts off the vital lifelines between all species - including humans. The blood running against gravity across @emmajordin ‘s face represent these sacred, yet tarnished lines in the current day. Eventually, if we do not revert to simpler ways, or adapt modern living with ecological preservation...this blood will become our own. Mother Nature will take vengeance if we do not protect her from our own kind. 
Once, human survival was determined by nature. Now, humans determines the survival of nature.

How do I mentally push myself? How do I manage to push through the pain and succeed? Well, I talk to myself. I coach myself through breath, focus, and inspiration. I breathe to match my efforts. I focus on the task at hand - my mind doesn’t wander off otherwise it gets tired. And I think of the athletes who have suffered so much to get to the podium despite their injuries. As I’m going up a hill and there’s a little clearing for a moment of rest, I tell myself ‘keep pushing, you don’t stop when it gets hard, you push and you slow down but you don’t stop’. When I’m puffed I tell myself ‘this won’t last, it hurts now, but in a few steps you’ll level out again’. And when my lungs are burning I tell myself ‘(insert inspirational athletes name here) didn’t get to the top by taking a rest - they felt the burn and it was worth it. It’s supposed to hurt. It’s supposed to be uncomfortable. But some of us like the feeling and others don’t. I didn’t grow up being an awesome athlete. I competed in track and field and cross country skiing. The two worst sports for my cardiovascular system. I loved and hated it. Loved the strength component, but despised how my heart and lungs felt. And it reflected in my constant positioning in the bottom half. The reason I train cardio is so that I can charge up mountains. Otherwise I hate it and love it. I love it once I get better. The process leading up to feeling cardio strong is disgusting and gruelling. The strength side of things is where I excel at. I used arm wrestle the boys - always winning. At the age of 12 I could do 5 chin ups without training. Today I use my strengths to balance my weaknesses. That’s how we become well rounded athletes in anything we choose to do. My pre hike & pre training routine covers core and glutes and keeps my back feeling strong, safe, and comfortable. The pre activity activation is key. Post activity, it’s a few stretches so I don’t get rigid in my long drives home & then at home I stretch some more! I hope this helps you to challenge yourself and to work mentally through your difficult moments in the gym, on the treadmill or trail run. Questions? Ask away!

'Sugared Land/s, 2019 by Sancintya Mohini Simpson. Projected onto the Banyan tree (circa 1870) in the City Botanic Gardens. The artist "explores the significance of this site and its connection to her own maternal ancestry: the Indian diaspora of indentured labourers who worked on sugar cane plantations across the world." You will see the rising tide lap against the shore. This fabulous work is accompanied by a narrative, so do take the time to stop and listen ❤

🖤
But you throw me into the deep end
Expect me to know how to swim
And I put my faith in someone else
'Cause I will be just fine
Welcome to the jungle
Are you gonna dance with me?
Welcome to the jungle
You got to close your eyes and see
Welcome to the jungle
Are you gonna dance with me?
Well, hold on,
well, hold on

Amazing,challenging, exhilarating & exhausting. Discovered this little gem of a stream at the very furthest part of my walk today. After an early start I left the car at 4am fired up the head torch , 13kg of lowepro camera bay and gear on my back and started marching so as to get to this spot at dawn when the light would be perfect. What I didn’t count on was the hoards of leeches that would be waiting for me once I got there. As this shot was taken 54 of the little buggers were treating the toes on my right foot like a continental breakfast. They were everywhere, even on my camera. Am I crazy- maybe, will I be doing the same thing again next weekend- ABSOLUTELY.

Friday night and the drinks are flowing, ready to welcome our guests in the Brewery for Game of Thrones Trivia. It’s looking like another great weekend here at Headricks Lane 🥂

“It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard everybody would be doing it. The hard is what makes it great.” - Jimmy Doogan // Life’s hard, relationships are hard, hikes are hard, starting your own business is hard. Everything is hard, but it’s all achievable with the right mindset, tools, skills, and connections. I get asked all the time why I hike and why I hike alone. 60% of the time I hike alone because it’s my personal holistic therapy. When hiking alone, I get to literally do anything I want. It’s awesome to use the green latrine without embarrassment / power hiking up & blazing down trails is thrilling / & I physically cannot keep up a conversation while hiking upwards 😂 I have to keep my ‘head in the game’ to maintain my power in the cardiovascular strain I put myself in, & that is through silence. And gosh do I LOVE silence. I love to take hours shooting the same thing without feeling like I’m harping on someone else’s time. I don’t like feeling like I’m slowing someone down or feeling slowed down. That being said, the other 40% of the time is where I’d love some company because I get nervous about my ability to navigate and being alone in the depths of the bush. Though I’m always ready with maps and tracks, there’s that side of me that I don’t trust. Also, safety wise, it’s always good to have a buddy to make you feel like you’ve got each others’ back. But hiking in a nutshell will 1) get you out of the mundane rat race of city living 2) allow you to open up and connect with all your senses 3) it’s humbling (think: physical mental and psychological demands of being outside in an unknown environment alone) 4) experience clarity about life and direction - this is huge. How many times have you finished a spin class or a trail run and thereafter you knew exactly what you had to do to be the greatest YOU or to have an answer to a hard question, or to inspire someone who’s felt completely lost! 5) the list goes on but you also get calf muscles 🤙 anyway, whatever your reason is, getting our there is therapy, whether that be mental, physical or spiritual. Tell me one way you’ve connected to the earth today or how you will tomorrow!

We climbed a mountain at 3am, gazed at these wondrous stars and stayed up to watch the sunrise 🌌

A cool breeze
or a golden horizon 
Just give me something
to make me feel alive
