the wilderness beckoned…

“Without enough wilderness America will change. Democracy, with its myriad personalities and increasing sophistication, must be fibred and vitalized by regular contact with outdoor growths — animals, trees, sun warmth and free skies — or it will dwindle and pale.” Walter Whitman (Photo from Frances Lake, Eagle Cap Wilderness, 1982 backpacking trip)

seeking balance…

“The more civilized man becomes, the more he needs and craves a great background of forest wildness, to which he may return like a contrite prodigal from the husks of an artificial life.”  Ellen Burns Sherman

Cabin in the Ochoco Mountains

“I like to sit on the front porch of an old cabin I built in the woods and just listen to the birds; I like to fish in the pond and I always throw the fish back.” Johnny Cash

Smoke & Mirrors

“There is in every American, I think, a bit of the old Daniel Boone–who when he could see the smoke rom another chimney, felt himself too crowded and moved himself further into the wilderness.” Hubert H. Humphrey       Oh how quickly times change dear Hubert. The pioneer spirit is, for most, a distant memory, if they ever knew it at all. Below the Camas (Wa.) Paper Mill. The smoke is treated and less smelly than in years past.

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
