"... If it´s useless, I probably know how to do it!"
Dylan Eddy is an artist, surfer, climber and adventurer. He is one of our guides at the Emptiness Project, leading groups through the vast open spaces and enclosed rock formations at Joshua Tree National Park. In this conversation, DJ & I ask Dylan about his childhood growing up in a van on the beaches of southern California with his father. How did these formative years provide meaning through experiences of nature and freedom to take things more slowly than the typical kid growing up in the city or suburbs? How did his relationship with his father imprint certain programs that have been both blessings and impediments as an adult? What is the meaning behind experiences out in nature - both alone and shared? Dylan offers a candid insight into how and why we may navigate struggles and uncertainties alongside the awe and wonder of simply being present with our activities - however trivial they may seem.
These are the kinds of conversations that DJ & I like to have. In many regards, society is based upon such everyday insights of the mundane. These shouldn't be overlooked or dismissed as lacking meaning. We needn't always rush for the next great thing, thinking we´re missing out. Maybe if we simply reflected upon what gives us a sense of purpose and meaning instead of wondering how things may turn out, life could somehow be a little more interesting to experience?
