Child of the Land
by John Stang
Hi Stan, Somehow the right brain side that requires that you only consider the rational approach in pursuit of happiness may have gotten lost for me.
Maybe it was the day when running down hill at 4 years of age that I tripped and went free falling head first into a rock, or maybe it was the time when I went to preschool and for the first time I needed to cross the street that a Red Ford pickup came into my vision just before it ran over me. Or maybe it was because I may have had a Dad that just chucked it all to move to Alaska to live his dream, or maybe it was just having to figure out how to get out there and be something other than another government employee.
Whatever, but somehow I just had to walk to the beat of a different drum. I didn't seek out adventure, somehow it just seemed to be a part of what ever and where ever I was making a living at the moment since most of those endeavors were the trail less traveled.
I want to thank you Stan big time for sharing your adventures and knowledge you have shared in your Wealthy Adventurer´s Library.
I look forward to meeting you in Quito and also those others who just have to walk to the beat of their own drum. John Stang
