A Race With Yourself

The landscape by its patient resting there, teaches me that all good remains with him that waiteth, and that I shall sooner overtake the dawn by remaining here, than by hurrying over the hills of the west.--H.D. T

This is much like a favorite quote I found in a trail register on the Pacific Crest Trail in 2000. "In the end you find, no one wins, and the race was only with yourself.

So, take the path of your own choosing, and don't be dismayed if no one leads, or follows.--Unknown

It seems there is so much impatience, and looking back over life, didn't everything go so fast. In the end, how much of it will matter.

A New Job

I have decided, in spite of all the dreary economic warnings, to quit my real job and start a seasonal lifestyle. This summer I shall work in Yellowstone National Park.

"Why should we live with such hurry and waste in life? We are determined to be starved before we are hungry. Men say that a stitch in time saves nine, and so they take a thousand stitches today to save nine tomorrow."---H.D. Thoreau

One season at a time, one adventure, one love, one goal: enjoy each to its fullest without haste or forward wishes.
