Top of the World
It's been awhile between posts, but I have a good excuse. I've been back in Alaska with the family enjoying life at the top of the world again. This is the first time in over 30 years I've been in Alaska without owning anything here. I realized very quickly that if you don't own anything you don't have anything to take care of. Buddhists figured this out a long time ago and that's why they are always smiling. I have been smiling too -- kicking stones on the beach with the boys, borrowing boats to see the bay, and generally enjoying the good weather, fresh fish and most excellent company. Now, it's back to Vermont where my tractor waits quietly for me.
