Three more days

Just 3 more days and I will be off to camp in the mountains. . . amid the snow and the bears.

“One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.”  William Shakespeare from Trollus & Cresida

“The fire is the main comfort of the camp, whether in summer or in winter, and  is about as ample at one season as at another.  It is as well for cheerfulness as for warmth and dryness.”  Henry David Thoreau

“Even in a time of elephantine greed, one never has to look far to see the campfires of gentle people.”  Garrison Keillor

“It always rains on tents.  Rainstorms will travel thousands of miles, against prevailling winds for the opportunity to rain on a tent.”  Dave Barry

Thank you to Shakespeare, Thoreau & Keillor for recognizing the humble happiness of camp and camping.  Mr. Barry, I agree with you.  At least you didn’t mention snowstorms and snow on a tent.

"If you are what you should be you will set the whole world on fire."
St. Catherine of Sienna

I finally understand

"Among those around you, apostolic soul, you are the stone fallen into the lake. With your word and your example, you produce a first circle, and it another, and another, and another, wider each time. Now do you understand the greatness of your mission?" St. Josemarie Escriva: The Way
