There’s something about Glacier

Notes while Jody Maberry and i had lunch at Two Dog Flats restaurant at Rising Sun Motor Inn. Was explaining my disdain for pontificators. Used the war historian versus soldier analogy. A war historian has never fought in a war, yet positions themself as an expert. To which Jody added…

There’s something about Glacier.

Perhaps it was the stunning and surprising imprint that Summer-of-1973 morning. Awakening and walking out the Swiftcurrent Motor Inn door and having my 14-year old mind blown by the sunrise igniting The Many Glacier Valley in a natural grandeur never seen before.

Final answer.

But wait, that was the just the catalyst.

There’s more to it.

Perhaps tomorrow.

This pair is trimming all the tree limbs from electrical wires. There are no wires on our side. This is their lunch break.

Such a first world luxury that a service, paid with tax dollars, travels from neighborhood to neighborhood, trimming tree limbs that could potentially cripple the electrical grid.

Otherwise, every lot owner would either do it themselves or ignore it altogether.

Put systems in place to do the right things for the right reasons. Be proactive to eliminate or alleviate future challenges. Proactive is common sense, but not common practice.

You are free to reprioritize

It won’t be long before these are party of two reservations. Maybe. 

You are free when you can instantly rattle off your priorities, in priority order. 

If you are there now, sweet!

If not, today is a new day.

Are you contagious?

Thinking in five year terms is poignant when planning for retirement. How will you continue to use money once you no longer earn a paycheck. 

We are so used to living day to day and week to week. 

Moving to year to year or decade to decade, we must think radically differently.  

High odds we do not have a role model or coach who gifts us with a crystal ball.

Relentlessly organized

College employees who happen to be Disney advocates. 

They took us “backstage” in their operation. 

Told them it felt like they were taking us down into their “tunnels”. 

With 66 combined Disney years of service, Cheryl and i only know one way to do things. 

The Disney Way stands out. 

We are not trying to stand out, it simply comes with the territory.

Disney is relentlessly organized. We are similarly organized. Disney prioritizes their (our) priorities.
