My daughter and I always seem to have the best conversations at 3 in the morning. Sheโ€™s just going to bed and Iโ€™m getting up for work. We were talking about our vacation plans for 2018 and we started reminiscing about our vacations this year. Itโ€™s already coming up on a year since we were in London. I think we are both ready to go back. .

Between the banks of pleasure and pain flows the river of life. If you spend too much time on either bank, you will miss out on life.

An early morning start brought a somewhat picturesque sunrise yesterday morning. But the mountains, ohhhh they did not disappoint. Iโ€™m so excited for the snow. Iโ€™ve never skied and at my age, I donโ€™t want nor need to learn. But I can snowshoe and Iโ€™m more than ready for that.

A Veteran - Whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve, is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check payable to the United States of America, for an amount up to, and including their life. That is an honor and deserving of the highest honor. And there are way too many people, in this country today, who no longer understand that fact!
Today and everyday, I am eternally grateful for your sacrifice and your service! THANK YOU!!! This is my favorite active duty veteran, my son. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

There is a phenomenon called trail magic, known and spoken with reverence by everyone who hikes the trail, which holds that often when things look darkest, some little piece of serendipity comes along to put you back in a heavenly plane.

Someday, hopefully soon, I will be able to get out and play in the snow. Work is kicking my butt, 65 hours last week and looking pretty close to the same this week. Somebody come save me from myself....

The trees were gazing up into the sky, their bare arms stretched in prayers for the snow.

Just because you are following a well marked trail doesnโ€™t mean that whoever made it knew where they were going.

Delicious Autumn!
My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive Autumns.
