“Leave it to me, as I find a way to be.
Consider me a satellite forever orbiting.
I know all the rules but the rules did not know me.”Eddie Vedder
This is one of the nuggets you can find on the wonderful soundtrack to “Into the Wild”. Another great song is “Society“. Eddie found telling language and soothing music to accompany the life and death of Chris McCandless. I have read the book, watched the movie, hiked to bus #142 on the Stampede trail, and keep reading what people have to say about the adventures and the lifestyle of Chris.
I am sure he did not seek fame nor fortune. He followed his dream and made it to Alaska on his own terms. He did not seek safety nor guarantees.
