Less than six months to live?

Disney's Jungle Cruise Christmas tree
Yesterday. Fun. Creative. Wacky.

One week ago on December 8 was the official “six months remaining to live” from the original “what would you do if you had 10 years left to live?”

Such an obscure, crazy, and uncomfortable goal.

What if it transforms my life?

What if it alienates me from others?

What if?

Life is full of habits and rituals that never allow most humans to legitimately and originally answer, “What if?” 

This is the headwaters for regret.

The conditions are nothing i could have planned for.

Not the cooler and wetter weather – that’s easy to plan for.

The Howe Ridge fire.

Going-To-The-Sun-Road is closed from Apgar to Logan Pass.

What would have been an hour drive up from Apgar is now a 2.5 to 3-hour drive around the East side and up.

There are also potential closures of Many Glacier Hotel and Granite Park Chalet.

For now, i’ve moved the Apgar accommodations to the East side.

Time will tell.

Unanswered Questions?

Is this an impossible thought?

Is this an impossible thought?

Is it possible to get excited about dying?

Dear Son

Daily chaos is our standard modus operandi

Daily chaos is our standard modus operandi.

No?

Yes?

What are you doing about it now?

What are you building into your life to handle chaos in the future?

Unresolved chaos leads to more chaos.

There will never be a time when you can coast for the rest of your life.

Accept this and build your life accordingly.

Live like you mean it

Without a plan (metaphorically speaking)

Without a (10-year) plan (metaphorically speaking)…

i was a sinking ship.

There is no place worth going if we do not picture a vibrant future.

So each morning with no place worth going, we default to focusing on medicating, distracting, and entertaining ourselves to numb our pain from knowing we are moving slowly and in line for the metaphorical slaughter.
