Miracles

“There are only two ways to live your life.

Today, more Noble Prize winners have been announced. Reminded me of Einstein, who was not only good for scientific theories that changed “our” views on matter and time. He also led a wild private life and is a great source for inspirational quotes.

I am reentering society, sort of, after being on the road for more than 4 months and living north of the arctic circle, where every day is a miracle. The solitude and remoteness, the weather, the landscape, and the small number of individuals that I encountered in that environment left me no choice, but marvel in the quality of every day. I could stayed up there and maybe I will return some day.

I have met a handful of people in past couple of weeks, who have told me coming to Yellowstone was a life-changing event. Some have made the park and its surrounding settings their permanent home. Others come back, as often as possible.

I am taking it all in at the moment: Bitter cold mornings, enjoyable afternoon sunshine, winter storms…
