Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell. And when you get angry, get good and angry. Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.

In another camp are the fisherman who claim not to care how big a trout is. “It’s the challenge,” they’ll say, “the flies, the casting, the manner and method. Nothing wrong with a foot-long trout. Oh, and the scenery, and the birds singing, etc.” I use that line myself and, like most of us, I sincerely believe it, act upon it, and am happy, but tell me you know where the hawgs are and I’ll follow you through hell.

My fiance looks good! Found our engagement photographer on Craigslist. She was building a portfolio so we got a great deal on the photo session. And a few really good pictures.
