adventure.


remember what Bilbo used to say: It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to. -j.r.r. tolkien


man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore. -andre gide


we should come home from adventures, and perils, and discoveries every day with new experience and character. -henry david thoreau

yesterday john and i decided to take advantage of the sunshine and good weather and try our hand at paragliding. fred was our photographer extraordinaire :) we flew out at a point looking over the beach in puerto naos, on the other side of the island from where we live in los cancajos. the experience was incredible and the view was breathtaking.

Girl, you've got guts. Guts and talent and looks and a good man and a great view and so much more. I can think of no better realm for you to exist in than soaring above the commoners!
