The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.

  3. Like a mirror. I like that. Only what is all that blue on the stones or is it the reflection of the sky.

  9. I find when I get out in the middle of nowhere (usually in the desert) my pace seems to automatically slow. It's a feeling I really enjoy!
