4.543 Billion years. That’s how old this blue marble is. Our existence doesn’t even breach the fourth decimal point. And if anyone believes that the Earth can't devour us just as quickly as it spat us up, just visit Iceland. You'll see first hand a very small example of what a vicious and untamed planet can look like and no balance sheet, GDP, or weapons spending, not even Stormy Daniels herself, regardless of how ironically relevant her name is to this spiel, would mean anything in the face of that. We are here. By design or by mistake is detail. The fact is that we are here and we're here together. Perhaps if recognize a few basic truisms for how transient and fickle they truly are then the global narrative can start to change. Until then, enjoy the debate on whose God is better than whom and which empire will out do them all by lasting forever... oh soap box how i’ve missed you... #LifeHappensOutdoors .

When you come across a glowing blue Iceberg on a black sand beach, you get a picture with it, because that thing is freakin awesome. Also, because rising air and water temperatures will likely make it disappear rather quickly. Iceland is one of the most geographically dynamic, unpredictable, and incredibly beautiful places I've had the pleasure of visiting, and will surely return. with @bkdostanko
Wandering the Diamond beach with @bkdostanko , where pieces of Breiðamerkurjökull Glacier have been washed ashore in south Iceland. Stemming from the main glacier Vatnajökull, which is several thousand years old, I guess you could say this ice is older than dirt. There is quite literally nothing like ancient ice on a volcanic black sand beach. It's out of this world.
To be honest with you, I never thought I would get a chance to see a glacier up close and for real in this lifetime. So when I got a chance to not only see them but LION KING with a piece that broke off, you know I had to.
