Traveled light, by design Yesterday morning, down off the mountain, in Chimney Rock. Five bedrooms were needed at this Riverside House rental. What were the odds of running into Nancy and Debbie? Yesterday on our ascent. From the Chimney Rock flag pole. Real life in real time. It really does look like a devils head. The devil. Dave and Nancy epitomize Mid Life Celebration. L-R, Dave Weir (JD, for Jack Daniels), me, Carl Benson (Bennie, not sure why, ha). Packing up was easy. And without the books and food i traveled with going up, coming back was even lighter. A light load makes the journey easier. The journey is more focused too, because there’s less stuff. We know this. Next Blog By jeff noel Retired Disney Institute Keynote Speaker and Prolific Blogger.
