It's another lesson, or at least one reinforced: You can feel lousy and do nothing or feel lousy and let serendipity have a chance. We cast our lot for serendipity, and were rewarded with perfect weather, stunning spring wildflowers, and best of all, peace. No traffic, no cell signal, no connection to the misery we left behind. We woke up to turkeys gobbling and quail whistling, and spent our days too involved in wild places to dwell on concerns. And most importantly, we remembered why years ago we had worked so hard to adopt this lifestyle. The only thing I would do differently now is attempt, somehow, to inspire others to do the same. For us the magic is wild nature, but for others it could be anything that makes you feel so alive that you catch yourself in tears.
Just go. Just do. Right now.
