Came home with a rock climbing brochure tucked in my purse. Exploring the reason for the rock climbing brochure's presence. Holding it up to the light and turning it over in my hands. Why do I have this thing?
REI is a scourge that romantizes hard work, exercise, suffering and nature. I've been down this path before. I used to own hiking boots. I owned a kayak. I've camped and I've done triathlons. But there's a reason I've been inside my house with my laptop and a latte for years. I can't remember the reason now. I have REI amnesia.
