She’s one of my closest girlfriends. Don’t put her in a box, she won’t fit. There’s a duality to her idiosyncrasies. She is floating in the cosmos, bursting with creative energy and also walking grounded on the Earth, her head solid on her shoulders. We like to cook dinner and chat about the rollercoaster of entrepreneurship. And how we wouldn’t have it any other way. Then we put on some kooky hammer pants and crop tops and find a good dance party: hip-hop, soul, disco, please.
With my outdoor friends, I feel like the city cat. But with Andi, I feel like a professional climber. She’d never been backpacking before and I wanted to share it with her. The unique way of moving through the natural world with everything you need on your back, self-subsistence nourishing a sense of freedom, strength and humility.
