I was going to call this post Shut the #$%@ Up! But cooler heads prevailed. What am I being so harsh about? Hiking with your music on without head phones. There are so few places to enjoy the great out doors in Southern California and a surprising amount of people think this is a great place for them to share THEIR favorite playlist. I say NO! Your music may be YOUR inspiration, but for the majority of us out on the trails, Silence is Golden. I am not saying you can't listen to your favorite jam while you are hiking, walking, or running on the trails. I am saying I (and most of the people sharing these resources) do not want to hear it. Take that opportunity to hear your breath as you walk up the hill. Maybe you can hear the cry of the hawk circling above, or the deer rustling through the brush. What a great time to contemplate the wonderful world of nature. What the heck does this mean? Well you can either meditate on it or find a friend to enjoy a cup of coffee (see previous post) or a wonderfully awesome delicious cup of tea and discuss. Be Well.
