Good Enough

I’m hardly much of an outdoorsman — but Tom Stienstra‘s Sunday outdoors column in the San Francisco Chronicle is always one of my favorites.

Today, he’s got a great one again — Trolling their way to friendship — that includes a wonderful insight:

One of my secrets for enjoying the great outdoors is that whatever happens is always good enough. Try to live in the moment of the outdoor experience, and there will always be rewards.

Indeed, isn’t that the secret of life? As James Taylor wrote a while back:

The secret of life is enjoying the passing of time.  Any fool can do it.  There is nothing to it.
