35 Magical Years of Disney Service

Today, my wife Cheryl celebrates 35 Magical years of Service at The Walt Disney World Resort and for The Walt Disney Company.

So impressive.

Not the number of years.

The magnitude of her contribution.

If you don’t have to, work

Rob arrived at noon yesterday from Orlando.

If you don’t have to, why would you?

You’re an adult and you can pretty much take any life path you want.

You’re the boss.

So, if you don’t have to be remarkable at work, why would you invest the time, energy, and karma to develop, maintain, and enhance the output required of an artist?

Conference nirvana

Toured this Cottage yesterday in between Guest departure and arrival.

Conference nirvana.

i have a dream of hosting an intimate, transformational, and fun “conference” in Glacier National Park.

Just a dream at this point.

Living the dream

It’s not the Magic that makes it work, it’s the work that makes it Magic. Yesterday at the Mt. Cannon/Mt. Clements saddle. Mt. Oberlin is the dark mountain before the Garden Wall.

On the occasional trail conversations that go deeper about why i visit so often and for so long, fellow hikers remark, “You’re living the dream.”

First, totally aware.

Second, i always remind the commentors that i’m 60 years old and that it’s taken a lifetime to arrive at this lifestyle.

Great leaders instill confidence

Garmin GPS
At 8,616′, i found shelter behind a rock and ate lunch at 11:00 AM.
mountain side
Looking left (East) from my lunch seat. Not an optical illusion. It’s that steep.
mountainside rest spot
The foothold (right foot) was reassuring.
The cairn (rock-pile marker) was there when i got there.
Logan Pass visitor’s center in lower center. Mt. Oberlin middle-left edge. Character from Toy Story 4 (Summer 2019).

Great leaders instill confidence.

Stacy and Steve stumbled upon me eating lunch at 8,616′.

With the super strong winds, i was uncomfortable enough to stop ascending, eat lunch, and then descend rather than push 500′ more to the summit.

Stacy and Steve were summiting for the 13th time. Stacy spread her parent’s ashes at the summit three and eight years ago respectively.

i knew right away that they’d be great guides (leaders).

It was a no-brainer to continue ascending.

My gut was accurate.
