oriondavid Had a Friday night free so I caught a high school game under the lights at Vanderbilt.

This is a picture of Raymon Mitchell, sophomore QB for the Maplewood Panthers, rolling out of the pocket for a run. The Panthers lost 27-34 in a game with lots of ups and downs. Glad I got to see them play.
I recently watched the documentary "Undefeated" (it's on Netflix streaming, FYI) about a football team in Memphis, TN. It rekindled that Friday-night-light passion - and the belief that great coaching, teamwork, and intensity will teach you things you'll take beyond the football field and help form your character.
I spent every single fall Friday in HS playing in a game. Our team was not nearly as good as the Panthers, but like anything you bring passion to --- it was magic.

oriondavid #tbt to table talks in #bartabwa #kenya w/ @twvchitwood & edward masengo.

one of my favorite moments of the trip. the dialogue/connection was rich. i learned a lot from the way edward talked about how-to-live... and how he lived.

oriondavid #tbt to road-tripping/hiking/camping through the #canadianrockies w/ my brother Caleb in 2008. snagged this picture from a way-old facebook album. the caption said "here i am!" on the trip we memorized parts of bob dylan's 7 page poem "last thoughts on Woody Guthrie", jumped from 65' cliffs into glacier run-off water, worked (illegally) on an oil field in Alberta, and sneakily sped home to surprise our mom for her 50th birthday.
there is no one else i'd rather hike with @calebandclau! miss you, bro.

oriondavid happy father's day, dad!
thanks for bringing play and imagination into caleb and i's world. thanks for the bed-time skits and custom back-woods hiking trails and tree-forts in mulberry trees. thanks for your vision, your ideas, your self-dignity, and zealous pursuit of justice for all human-beings. thanks for seeing me and holding me and hugging me and talking with me and teaching me and believing in me. thanks for allowing me to be an artist; to be different. thanks for challenging me to try out for QB in the summer of 2003. thanks for showing me how to work hard. thanks for your lifetime love of mom. thanks for your poems. thanks for it all. keep being the bad-ass role-model you are to so many high school students. love you. #fathersday #blessed

  •   itsp_dad @oriondavid Thanks for the kind of words you spin to bless many with your thought-tapestries. It was a lot of fun playing games with you all those years. Believing in you was easy, and heck! I made those tree forts so I could play in them! 3mon

oriondavid @rebekahpahl planned the best belated b-day adventure ever: canoeing the harpeth river!
we saw great herons take flight, gargantuan snapping turtles sun-bathing, and paddled through a 10-minute torrential downpour. it. was. AWESOME.
