I love days with imperfect weather for how they let nature’s beauty shine in unexpected ways.
It's amazing that no matter how many pictures of the Grand Canyon you see online, the views in person are far more inspiring. After finding a "campsite" (~20' off of a hiking trail), @joeleeisnotjolie and I set up our hammocks and braved the fall night air under a full moon to rest for the day ahead. Hearing that damn alarm 4 hours later was painful, but worth it.
When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down 'happy'. They told me I didn't understand the assignment, and I told them they didn't understand life. -John Lennon
Just a cute squirrel enjoying a....hamburger!?! The squirrels in Boston are definitely fat & happy.
Build a bridge 🌉 and get over it. So many times we get hung up on "things" we cannot control or that are trivial in the big scope of life (and obviously, it is perception.. what may be trivial to me may be life-changing to you), BUT.... this is our one shot at THIS life. Building a bridge, rather than walls, which can help get to the other side... and this bridge, Pierce Stocking Covered Bridge, reminded me of that.
