“A thing is right when it tends to preserve the beauty, stability, and integrity of a community, it is wrong when it tends to do otherwise.”

Happy birthday on January 11th to Aldo Leopold.

Holiday Finale: Privilege

I had some other subjects I was going to write about for my last post in this holiday series. As 2016 wrapped up and my eyes are on 2017, I think a lot about how many people I am fortunate to have crossed paths with in this past year. I look ahead to new beginnings with a full time job in California beginning now in 2017. It’s been a privilege to live life and work dynamically and adventurously for the better part of the last decade, and now it will be a new kind of privilege and adventure from here on.

Turns out a friend and family family member of mine summed up what I thought about a lot this year. I thank Garrett Dimon for sharing his words and journey. Have a happy 2017, everyone, keep looking out for each other.
