Look out, I’ve been feeling reflective lately. No fishing stories. No tales of adventure or tackle or feathers.
The signs are all around. Time is short. Options are limited and are becoming fewer each day. I have so much here to live for. Family. Friends. Wild salmon. Become a better man. Resisting the push of water against my thighs. A chance, perhaps, to swim with Wild Salmon.
Every moment counts, every choice matters. I will make choices today. So will you. May we be blessed to know who we are, create a small measure of kindness, seek ways to make each day better than if we were not here, and consider that justice and rightness are elusive.
By the way. I am not done here. Not quite yet.
