Michael these are all such amazing pictures! Your parents told me to check them out a while back. I’m glad I saw you tonight, so it reminded me to do so. Looks like you’ve had some unbelievable experiences! I would love to explore nature like that, the rock-climbing especially. Keep doing what you do!
Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not
knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose. From the standpoint of
daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: That we are here for the sake of
others, for the countless unknown souls to whose fate we are connected by a bond
of compassion. Many times a day, I realize how much my outer and inner life is built
upon the labors of others, both living and dead, and how earnestly I must exert
myself in order to give in return as much as I have received.
