When you choose to live differently, there may be times when you question your choices to pick the road less traveled.
Or perhaps after a long day of travel mishaps, you’re feeling cranky and wishing that the only driving you do is a commute to work.
Why pick such an odd lifestyle, when a path to a â€œsure thingâ€ is around the corner, waiting for you?
Because as Dale says, â€œlife presents itself a series of opportunities. . .â€
The human organism always moves itself
to a more satisfactory state of affairs
as defined by that particular organism in that moment
with very little reference to the past or the future
primarily to the Moment
the There and the Then.
Therefore, that means that
life becomes a series of opportunities
to manipulate the environment
for a more satisfactory state of affairs
as defined by that particular organism.
So live, so that when thy summons comes to join that innumerable caravan which stomps through time
go not like the quarry slave scourge to his dungeon in the dark of night,
but as the gentle person who sits on his couch, wraps his cloak about him
and takes his most deserved repose.
So live. Live.
It’s not always easy for us, but there are a couple of authors whose books keep us grounded when we need it most. If you’re at all interested in living an off-the-beaten-path lifestyle, these might help you make that dream a reality.

and animal â€“ has important
lessons to teach us if we would only
stop, look and listen
