After a long day of watching movies and a late night of drinking, I slept with a man I love.

Ten years since its inception the Adventure Film Festival is still going strong. And even though its creator, artist and climber Jonny Copp, has passed away, his spirit endures through a thriving community of supporters who every year gather in Boulder Colorado to celebrate the legacy of a great leader. The program has expanded to include day-long exhibits and performances by local artists in an adventure street fair out in front of the Boulder Theater.

Traveling from Madison to Boulder, Colorado my flight was delayed by almost 8 hours. I arrived in Denver two hours after the party started. Adventure athlete and women’s empowerment activist Shannon Galpin was celebrating her birthday at the Bitter Bar. With everyone in town for the Adventure Film Festival dozens of people would be there that I hadn’t seen in too long. Despite my best efforts to lead what might be described as a normal life I keep getting drawn back to all these creative and exciting people...
