Quote of the Moment

"Do not burn yourself out. Be as I am-a reluctant enthusiast...a
part time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of
yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not
enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it.
While you can. While it is still there. So get out there and hunt
and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and
explore the forests, encounter the grizz, climb the mountains, bag
the peaks. Run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid
air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness,
that lovely, mysterious and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep
your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body,
the body active and alive, and I promise you this much: I promise
you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those deskbound
people with their hearts in a safe deposit box and their eyes
hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this: You will
outlive the bastards."
-Edward Abby

I don't know who this Edward Abby fellow is, but he sounds like a guy we could get along with.
