The Colorado Mountain Bike Association is deeply saddened by the recent loss of Anthony Sloan – a friend, Yeti tribesman and member of our Board of Directors. COMBA is currently considering ways in which to honor Anthony as a valued member of the local MTB community. We will keep you posted.
Anthony's mother has asked that we share this poem from T.S. Eliot in remembrance of Anthony.
With the drawing of this Love and the voice of this
Calling We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
Through the unknown, unremembered gate
When the last of earth left to discover
Is that which was the beginning;
At the source of the longest river
The voice of the hidden waterfall
And the children in the apple-tree
Not known, because not looked for
But heard, half-heard, in the stillness
Between two waves of the sea.
Quick now, here, now, always--
A condition of complete simplicity
(Costing not less than everything)
And all shall be well and
All manner of thing shall be well
When the tongues of flames are in-folded
Into the crowned knot of fire
And the fire and the rose are one.
