AN UNCOMMON THOUGHT

"The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."

Simplicity.

Karr, Step Into A Pool -- Fall Into The Sky, 2011


There there is nothing like a wilderness journey for rekindling the fires of life. Simplicity is part of it. Cutting the cackle. Transportation reduced to leg – or arm – power. Such simplicity, together with sweat and silence, amplify the rhythms of any long journey, especially through unknown, untattered territory. And in the end such a journey can restore an understanding of how insignificant you are — and thereby set you free.
- Colin Fletcher, The River
