Worry is a Waste of Imagination.

I hope this postcard reaches you in spirits as high as when you wrote it. One year from now where will you be? Remember your humble beginnings guiding on the Chilkoot Trail. If you can get a group of 60, 70, and 80 year-olds to Happy Camp in two days, you can do anything. Keep living the dream and remember: worry is a waste of Imagination.

This is what it feels like.

Dear Mom and Dad, I don't know where I will be one year from now so I'm writing this to you. Today is the last day of my first guided long trip. Man, what an incredible experience. We hiked the Chilkoot Trail and here I sit this beautiful morning on the banks of a picturesque mountain lake. I've made it. This is what it feels like. Total freedom and joy knowing you've followed your dreams, your passions, and are completely and totally satisfied. Living the dream! Take risks, go on adventures, fall in love, laugh till your sides hurt, live with all of your being. Most importantly, have fun.

Optometry School
