I love the old saying a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. A small boat and a suitcase full of money beats a 40-footer tied to the Bank every time. We don’t have the suitcase full of money but he do have the boat and one of the most precious commodities, time.
I own the world, and very little else. Between the the two of us we have almost no possessions, a small half done boat, a couple 30 year old bikes, a sleeping bag and small pack, Serena has and old Subaru and a cute cottage in the foothills of Mt Baker
April is a busy month as we start wrapping up our lives and transitioning into summer. Everybody is asking our plans which seem to be so important to everybody but us.
We have no plans, there are mountains to climb and we will climb them. There are bays to be explored and we will explore them. There are Islands to be found and we will find them. We like to hike, bike, climb swim, play, explore, sleep, eat, and drink, the most important things in life are not things.
For me spring is the smell of rain, the sun on my shoulders, that feeling right before I wake up or fall asleep. Diving naked into an ice cold stream or lake. walking barefoot, getting lost, being found, storms, the sounds of night, sharing and exploring. You can’t plan these things, they are all happening right now.
Where a brooding Buddha blinks,
Deeply graven is the message,
It’s later than you think.
The clock of time is wound but once,
And no man has the power,
To tell just where the hands will stop,
At late or early hour.
Now is all the time you own,
The past a golden link.
Live now my brothers,
It’s later than you think. ~On the ancient wall of China
