Falsely believed for 45 years

Prince of Wales Hotel
Arrived mid-morning. Crazy windy, cold day. Front view.

The back windows provide stunning views.

Prince of Wales Hotel
The wind had nothing to stop it. The town of Waterton is on the right edge.

 

Had wanted to visit Prince of Wales Hotel since the first time i saw a photograph of it, maybe 45 years ago. Our day trip intervened future disappointment. I thought it was in the middle of nowhere much like Lake McDonald Lodge. While not in the middle of nowhere, it was not crowded. Cheryl spotted a bear 12 feet away as we pulled into the hotel.

Only the mediocre are at their best everyday

mediocrity
jeff noel has said this for years in his bio, “Allergic to most pollens and mediocrity”.

 

There’s a common sense notion that we change nothing until we change ourselves.

Deep down inside, we know this.

But what if we fail?

Well, we surely fail if we do nothing or do it half-baked.

Here’s to you. Today is your day. Expect an opportunity where you normally wouldn’t.

If he’s smart.

How Can You Tell?

At what age do we stop dreaming big dreams?

Barn in the middle of suburbia

 

(photo: Was this a dream of the Farmer?)

Never let our memories be bigger than our dreams.

At what age do we stop dreaming big dreams?

And is it ok to stop?

And if it is or isn’t, why?

The first symptom of the process of killing our dreams…

giving up on dreams
the writing's on the wall as they say

The first symptom in the process of killing our dreams is when we quietly, and repetitively say to ourselves, “I’d really like to, but I’m so busy at this time in my life”.

Boomers, You May Say We Are Dreamers, But We Are Not The Only One (Generation)

Remember the guitar from yesterday's post?

Dear brother and sister Baby Boomers, we aren’t the only generation dreaming big dreams and facing insurmountable obstacles. And we’re not the only generation to question everything. But the timing of our retirement and pervasive emptiness may position us as the best generation to lead a desperately needed health and wellness revival.

Are we Boomers dreaming bigger, reaching higher, caring more and working harder than we’ve ever done? I feel like I am.
