The outdoor community is one of the most vibrant and adventurous groups of people you’ll ever stumble into. And once you’re in, you’re inspired to make your mark within it. Some people go the professional route, building a life on a sport that pulls blood, sweat, and tears out of them. Others go the creative route, photographing, drawing, or creating beautiful and useful gear. But there’s another route, the one followed by those who create something that seems almost obvious but groundbreaking.
If I'm stuck on ideas in a painting I'll usually sit the work in progress somewhere in my room where I know I'll look at it when I open my eyes. I sit up in the middle of the night and watch what my mind creates in its lucid state. Then I wake up and try to paint it. I can close my eyes right now and make myself go into a lucid dream within five minutes and create whatever situation I want.
