Mountain Mayhem: Seizing the days
Last spring, I was at a retirement party, hearing stories from a longtime leader as he reminisced with a mix of serious business and lighthearted shenanigans. He kept the crowd engaged and entertained with a sunny disposition that later turned emotional as he posed a question (to paraphrase): “Is it the major moments that frame our lives or the combination of many minor ones that act as the scaffolding of our experience and really add up?”
Essentially, the question is whether the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. I think about this often, and to me, it is the blend of everyday experiences that keeps us on our journeys and connected and directed. I was looking through images of lately, from early morning runs to midday get-togethers to interactive afternoon receptions to late-night conversations, which I’ll share here as the scaffolding of my summer, so to speak. Cheers!
Baseball is for everyone; hipsters, gamblers, and drinkers, it doesn’t matter. It brings people together sans the hostility of most sporting events, maybe it’s the calming effect of the greenest possible green that is the field’s grass.
