“Some men fish all their lives without knowing it is not really the fish they are after.”
– Henry David Thoreau
I think I must be the luckiest man alive.
For most of my adult life I have lived in one of the most beautiful places in the world – and one of the safest (disregarding grizzly bears and mountain lions).
I share the love and companionship of the kindest and most considerate woman I have ever known.
I have wonderful kids and grandkids that I love very much, and they love me too.
I even have two awesome dogs.
Although, like most people my age I’ve had some issues, overall I enjoy robust health.
I’ve never made a lot of money, but the bills have always gotten paid, and there’s always been food on the table. Also, I’ve always been proud of the work I’ve done to put it there.
These are the things that are important in life. I am truly blessed.
