Sage overlooking Liberty Lake, Ruby Mountains in Nevada, 2001
As I am no longer 49 years old, and therefore on the down hill run, maybe it’s time I get around to formalizing what is important to me. Without being too “religious” and hopefully without sounding too self-righteous (believe me, my closets ain’t that clean) here’s a start.
Sage’s goal in life is to:
-To leave the path he travels a little better than he found it
-To realize that everyone is special and valuable
-To help those who can’t fend for themselves
-To understand that beauty and looks, needs and desires are often different things
-To be thankful for what I have, for those who have helped me along the way, and for the Creator
-To never be too busy that he can’t take a moment to appreciate a sunrise or sunset, to stand in awe and watch a thunderstorm, to be amazed at a snowfall or to value the serenity of a fire
-To savor good food and drink and entertainment, but all in moderation knowing that both hoarding and indulging cheapens the experience
This is a start. What do you think?
