"Life wastes itself whilst we are preparing to live." Ralph Waldo Emerson
Monday, May 18
this day in history
It's the anniversary of the eruption of Mt St Helens. 29 years ago the Washington mountain blew 1500 ft off of it's top and side, killing 57 people, producing as much energy as 500 atomic bombs, and blacking out the sun in the middle of the day.
I find myself loving life and what it has to offer. Boredom is far from reality. What a privilege it is to live in a country where I am free to travel, free to live where I want for as long as I desire, free to dream, free to achieve those dreams.
