A year of photos captures the Lewis & Clark spirit: Happy Holidays!


“a capella singing” I want to go and I want to see I want to run as far as my legs will carry me I want to fly and I want to soar, I want to see what lies beyond my own front door I want to shout and I want to sing, I want to be strong and let my voice ring. I want to be brave enough to raise hell I want to make something bigger out of myself I want to fall and I want to dive and yes I want to do everything before I die. I want to shine even if it’s cloudy I want to break through the boundaries. I used to believe that I was small and I used to believe that I was powerless I almost threw myself away because some old man told me I don’t have what it takes, but I don’t believe anymore that I am small. and I don’t believe anymore that I am powerless I’ve got the whole world knocking on my door and I’m going to answer raise the stakes. I want to smile until my face hurts, I want to laugh so hard my body wants to burst I want to climb all of the mountains tall and if my feet ache then dammit I will crawl. I want to shout and I want to sing I want to be strong and let my voice ring. I used to believe that I was small. I used to believe that I was powerless. I almost threw myself away because some old man told me I don’t have what it takes, but I don’t believe anymore that I am small. And I don’t believe anymore that I am powerless, I’ve got the whole world knocking on my door and I’m going to answer… I don’t believe anymore that I am small, and I don’t believe anymore that I am powerless I’ve got the world knocking on my door and I’m going to answer, raise the stakes.
