Dear Son

You have to bring the good time with you

You have to bring the good time with you.

Sunny weather.

Cloudy weather.

Doesn’t matter.

You can’t predict, nor control, what hand you’re dealt.

All you can do is make the best of whatever you’re dealt.

Those distant mountains really pop when the sun is shining brightly.

Not so much in cloudy, rainy weather.

Be okay dancing in the rain and letting your own light reach the mountains.

The view from space changes you in a profound way

 

 

 

 

 

Viewing earth from outer space changes you.

Ask any astronaut.

But what about mere mortals on earth?

As we watched this yesterday, 120-seconds in we needed to stop…and i immediately had an epiphany – Glacier National Park is my version of outer space.

The similarities are different

Glacier easy trails
Trail of the Cedars is a flat trail, not quite a mile. Elevation maybe 4,000 feet.

 

Glacier easy trails
Hidden Lake trail is 3 miles round-trip and gains 500 feet elevation.

 

Glacier Hidden Lake Trail
The climb starts at 6,640 feet.

 

Glacier Hidden Lake Trail
Hidden Lake overlook somewhere near 7,000 feet.

 

Glacier Hidden Lake Trail
Mountain Goats frequent the area; it’s their home.

Two hikes an hour apart. One shaded, short and flat with no visible wildlife. The other trail steep and longer, in the hot sun. The 3,000-foot altitude gain allowed the (hot) sun to feel complementary instead of adversarial. Rewarded with a hairy marmot and two mountain goats on our return descent to Logan Pass visitor’s center.

So What?

Seeing the upside is the only option

Waterton, Alberta
Never knew there was a town nearby.

 

Prince of Wales Hotel
The view, in person, is as good as i had imagined.

Some perspective. The town of Waterton is the peninsula on the right.

Waterton, Alberta was a delightful mountain lake town. I’d go back in a heartbeat. They had “city deer” that roamed freely in front yards and were kid friendly.

All those important issues at work seem so trivial

Sanibel Island morning beach view

 

(photo: For 25 years, every morning beach walk was with a Yellow Lab… this morning was the first exception)

A bizarre experience…

So funny how all those important issues at work seem so trivial compared to the life of a loved one.

Yes we can love our job and worry about the business all the time.

Just keep things in check.

Okay?
