Trail Therapy — a modern day rustic poet

“In 1999, lost his son to suicide. A few years later he lost his daughter to a drug overdose. At sixty-four years old, he has walked across the United States seven times to raise awareness for depression and suicide and to inspire people he meets to “love life.”

This was, just… when he cries… his language… i just… the juxtaposition of how he looks, the down to earth idioms, his story, the simple quest he’s on and the handful of moments of free-flow beatnik poetry… this is magic.


…so they can go through that situation of pain and convert that damn evil, negative self pity into self reliance and go help others with it through nothing more than telling their own story.”
If you’re not on the list   I can’t help you.   Help me help you!

Thanks for posting this. Very moving and inspiring. The pain in Steve Fugate’s heart is tangible. I hope he finds some peace along the way. I hope we ALL find some peace along the way!

Two of my favorite moments:

They say, “What do you want?” and I say, “I don’t know. I’ll know when I get it.”

You can do it from the bottom of your feet or the bottom of your heart. Double Fist Pump and a Grin

What a guy. Thanks for passing this along.

I always feel better when I watch this kind of thing. Works the gratitude muscle.
