  • “The biggest hint I have to offer the beginner is that he be not a slave to convention; that he build not as his father built; that he think for himself, and that he accept truth wherever he finds it, and not because it is garbed in fine linen and goes prancing around in an automobile or a church pulpit, a university-chair, or an editor’s sanctum.” -  Jack London

Until this last week, I realized I had not been to the Minnesota state capital since my 6th grade class went.  What an interesting thing I thought, as I caught the last ten minutes they were open and wandered through catacombish halls I likely needn’t be in.

It seems quite serendipitous I should randomly come across it again, days before tomorrow’s elections.  Also reading Jack London recently I think there is something to be found in the combining of these occurrences.

I can’t advise you in anything political, as I myself have yet to decide.  But I do agree, we need to think for ourselves and find our own truths tomorrow.  What do you think?

  • “Good friends, good books and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.” -  Mark Twain

Mark obviously didn’t know about good dogs, or he would have included them.  So glad that these good friends let me take my first fall session with them and their pups.  Thanks guys!

  • “You realize that our mistrust of the future makes it hard to give up the past.” -  Chuck Palahniuk

This is so true.  I had a meeting with a man today.  A man that for no obvious reason wants to help me pursue a dream I’ve had.

I’ve had a lot of ideas.  Like this trip to Iceland from two years ago.  I thought I’d find a way to make all of these trips pay for themselves, creating works that would sell or using new knowledge to speak in schools or lead your groups.

In this meeting I realized there would be much to buy, and little to guarantee success.  There is a level of mistrust in myself and my ideas.  Though the dreams of their successes are more like nightmares in that I can’t help but believe there is a way to make it work.

Do I give up some of the things I’ve looked to in the past, and commit to a potentially fruitless future?

I think I should.

  • I've not felt very motivated to post on IG lately.  What I've felt is that it's quite overwhelming to try and keep up.  That, a lack of adventure, and a focus on financial stability has turned attentions away from some of the more desirous, creative pursuits.  That does not though signal the end of endless dreaming and lofty goals.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

As the grasshoppers disappear when seasons change, so do the roles we play.  Now that wedding season slows down because starting lives together in the snow is less desirable than green grass...the chance for adventure may again emerges.

It may not be the San Juans but, I think the same holds true for Lake Superior in the first week of October.
