A scene from the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska. We had just hiked 10 miles into the great wilderness, and took a rowboat to fly fish right as the sun was setting, before retiring to our cabin.
As many of you probably appreciate, the wilderness, or nature, removes us from the beguiling abstraction (distraction?) that is modern life, and plants us squarely in the moment. And, although I’m using modern technology to share this with you right now, I hope it compels you to locate this in your own life, again and again and again – not merely the wilderness, but the comfort of stillness, wherever you are.
