Got thirst quenchers

Woman on touring bicycle
Traveled for weeks with two bicycles and the stuff they would hold.

Oldest or youngest, at home?

Family of three next to Christmas tree
A recent December but not the current one.
Person sitting in the mountains
Strenuous walking is good for you. Resting (pictured here as we await sunset) is good for you too. Reflection is also good for you.

Blessed are the experienced. They possess earned insight and context. The inexperienced make errors the wise know how to prevent.

dad

Better to be the oldest person in the neighborhood or the youngest person in the nursing home?

Be the one in the neighborhood that knows the history.

Yet get out and see the world.

Being a different example brings me joy.

With an ever changing, and wonderful view.

Improve at home, don’t preserve

Regret sucks.

dad

Improve yourself at home.

The goal is more than becoming a priority-driven person.

The goal is to do that, then continuously improve beyond your wildest imagination.

And, in case it isn’t obvious from me (but it should be), this is for your lifetime. Until death do you part from this opportunity.

But you can never use luck as a strategy.
