I read several blogs each day including one about kayaking around the Olympic Peninsula and Puget Sound. Called “The Last Wilderness” and besides fantastic photography and great writing, the author describes places I want to kayak in the near future. “The Last Wilderness” blog post from yesterday included a quote by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe that got me thinking.
"A man can stand almost anything except a succession of ordinary days."
Except in our case, we have been enjoying a week of ordinary days since returning from Florida. After four months of almost daily “going”, it is nice to do the mundane like cleaning, catching up on errands and stocking up the empty refrigerator. But, I can see soon we will want to start exploring the Olympic Peninsula again. We are putting our plans together for those local trips, and maybe purchase kayaks this summer. Time to break away from our “succession of ordinary days”.
