"Let Go, Move On"

Sometimes it is impossible to "move on" without executing some form of "let go." The "let go" can hurt, but thinking about the future helps the hurt go away. "Move on" with living, learning, and dreaming.

"quarter-life crisis"

Let's assume "quarter-life" implies 25 years old. Maybe life is nothing more than one crisis after another. It is too bad that many crisis occur because of time (or loss thereof). Time is a "wasting" asset; at one moment you have it, then it is abruptly forever gone.

The following quote is in my quote collection.

How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?
-- Satchel Paige { Hall of Fame baseball player (1906-1982) }

I believe Ray Kurzweil is correct when he teaches that the future is "biotechnology, nanotechnology, and, ultimately, robotics." Biotechnology is going to come first and future discoveries may lengthen our life spans. It is for this reason that sustainability has become a keyword for the early part of the 21st century. Sustainability implies moving into the 22nd century and beyond. Biotechnology may free us from the time induced crisis because it will enable us to be be "forever young."

"I traveled alone and spent most of the trip by myself."

Mitch is passionate about maps and he thinks that this makes him "freaky." I guess he considers it "freaky" because most people don't give a foo about maps. Message to Mitch: Being able to travel alone makes you more of a freak. Most people cannot travel alone; in fact, many never consider it.

The following quote is in my quote collection.

The man who goes alone can start today: but he who travels with another must wait till that other is ready.
-- Henry David Thoreau
"I had high expectations for this little vacation, but I had no idea that it would change my life."

Peter Neumann--who, thanks to his mom, had breakfast with Einstein when he was a college student--teaches us to "expect the unexpected." [And to always give thanks to mom.]

An expectation is a choice of one; the unexpected offers infinite possibilities.

The following quote is in my quote collection.

I have learned, that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.
-- Henry David Thoreau
