With only one trip so far this year into the quest area, my concern is for the quick passage of time. I turned sixty-five in late June and wondered how I arrived at this age so quickly. There was a time when I stood on the side of the dance floor where the young guys gathered. But at some point in time, I suddenly realized I had crossed that dance floor of life and now sat with the old guys. Yes, I am some old guy…..
I continue to work at keeping the cash flow moving and writing the book, or mostly editing. At this stage of the quest, I’m also not able to reveal much about immediate or long-range plans for fear of giving out too much information. Perhaps I already have. But I don’t intend to end my search like the treasure hunter in lost in New Mexico six months ago. His body had recently been found and my sympathies go out to his family and friends. But life without risk carries little reward.
Recently I came across a quote from Abraham Lincoln.
“Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing.”
