Savor the richness

Feel the terrain beneath your feet. Don’t just speed past it or fly over it without noticing. Hold the texture of life in your hands. Immerse yourself in the details.

There is more to being alive than watching images on a screen. There is more to experience than hearing someone tell you about it.

Know life first hand. Make your own adventure, ask your own questions, and follow your own intuitions.

Stop hiding behind the excuses. There is so very much to touch, to do, to create, and to experience.

It is down on the ground, in the details and the intimacies that you will find life’s exquisite flavor. Wrap yourself around the experience, and savor the richness of every morsel.
