Late in the night, the Blogger blogs happily

Three hundred times I have sat down at my laptop to put my thoughts, feelings, and photos out there for anyone and everyone to see. Three hundred times I have had somebody, or lots of bodies, click on my blog and read along. Yesterday it was a very healthy 92 people. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to each of you who checks in from time to time.

A park ranger’s life can be a far cry from wherever you are and whatever you do, and some of you are living vicariously through my adventures. Here is my challenge to you: follow hard after your dreams and chase them down. If you have life circumstances that may prevent you from fully experiencing what you hope to do — so what!?! Create something that you can do, a baby step you can take, to move you toward your heart’s desire.

Acquire a passport. Register for a course. Organize a community event. Take a long-postponed trip. Learn a new skill. Contact an old friend. Donate unnecessary possessions. Begin writing that novel. Throw a dinner party. Go back to college. Buy a small tent. Forgive an offense. Simplify your life. Study a second or third language. Find a fresh hobby. Start a blog. Restore a damaged relationship. Run for public office. Sleep under the stars. Build a tree house. Apply for a long-shot job. Stir the pot… yes, stir the pot.

Risk-taking is part and parcel of being human. How will you step out of your comfort zone today? Find your courage; taste the deep satisfaction that accompanies your admirable choice.

Thank you for joining me on my journey.
