“A man grows most tired when standing still.” Chinese proverb.
Half way around the globe, hundreds or perhaps thousands of years ago, a wise man uttered those eight simple words. This unnamed wise man reduced a truth, an impulse, a philosophy, to eight simple words, as true today as the day he first spoke them. It is that belief: that moving our feet and chasing our passions is a venture worth sharing and celebrating, that brings us to you. Mountain Pool is the monument to our endless pursuit, and we invite you to follow along with us on this wonderful ride.
We share many passions, but claim no expertise in any of them. From fly fishing to rock climbing, beer brewing to antique furniture, jiu jitsu to acoustic guitars, photography to apparel, we will cover it all because we love it all. We may often be saddled with the duties and responsibilities that accompany the daily grind, but that doesn’t mean we have to sacrifice those extraordinary moments that life offers us on a daily basis. Life has so much to offer, let’s go out and find our piece of it.
Lastly, we are firm believers that music makes everything better. There are very few things we do without the soundtrack to our lives playing along in the background. With every blog post we would like to recommend an artist/album/song/playlist that has been a part of our lives. Some you will surely know, some you may not. Next time you put on your fishing waders, or head out onto the trail for a hike, pull up your smart phone and throw on some of our recommended tunes. Or don’t, it’s your choice. Just keep moving your feet and go out and find your piece!
