Man and Machine

July 05, 2018

Let’s take a moment to visit a bygone era, where a machine proudly stood as the beating heart of a once burgeoning mining town.

 

Over a hundred years ago, it whizzed, hummed, and turned, to haul mine carts out of the mountain and down to the valley below.

Now it sits, silent and alone. An ancient relic of a town long forgotten, destined to rust into oblivion.

Ironic, that it will be slowly reclaimed by the very earth it was once commissioned to remove.

 



As I look upon this massive monument, I cannot help but think of the hands who built it and the families whose livelihoods where tethered to its operation.

Men and women who have long since passed, but whose legacy lives on in their children and their children’s children.

But for all its mechanical marvel and glory, here it lies, long abandoned when the mine dried up decades ago.

 



We often look to technology to be our saving grace, but forget it takes a person’s touch to give it life.

 

A machine is only useful when it is running, and a tool is only as good as the man who wields it.

 

THIS SIGN WAS LOCATED ON ONE OF THE MINES ABOVE THE TOWN OF HIAWATHA, UTAH

Since the dawn of Man, we have battled to figure out how this world works and to create lives that we enjoy. There have been wars waged, lives lost, and emotional pain inflicted on countless numbers of our fellow men. And, for the first time in our history, it is possible to have it all. We can have the safety, the relationship, the career we love, and the life purpose.

Who We Really Are

June 13, 2018 1 Comment

We like to show ourselves in the best light possible. With the advent of social media, it becomes all too easy to craft an image that only tells part of the story. A digital highlight reel, if you will. If we aren't careful, we can get wrapped up in the facade we create and forget the reality of who we actually are...
