I love John Muir. Have I mentioned it before? There is something magical, contradictory and surprising in the phrase “They make their way into the heart of the roughest solitudes with smooth reserve of strength…” I’m not sure I have ever considered solitude as rough. But being alone, working alone is not always easy.

And I love the idea of conquering the challenges we face with quiet courage. There is an enviable beauty in the creatures who can reach their goals without wailing and lamenting their fate. There is grace in the steady steps and focus that makes them mountaineers.

How will you face your day?
