The secret of life…


Slims River, Yukon

“This is the real secret of life:

to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.”

Alan W. Watts

A good reminder. I am living and working in a spectacular place that visitors come to see, paying a good chunk of change. I get to wake up every morning surrounded by tall mountains and a deep fjord. We had a few rainy days, amazing clouds, and blue sky, the whole range. There was fresh salmon, halibut, and shrimp on my dinner plate. I had locally brewed spruce tip beer and I have seen amazing landscapes from the small planes, hiking up mountains, cruising with the ferry…

There is no time to remember all amazing moments of wilderness, solitude, and plain awe.

Flying over the glaciers and rivers in the Kluane region was certainly one of those outstanding moments that get better and better with time. Is it because they were fleeting moments, or because the scenery was out of this world?

Maybe both.

Enough reminiscing for today. Time to play!
