Meaning Of Life.jpeg

Great Salt And Pepper comic in the Wall Street Journal today.

“What makes you think the meaning of life

is any of your business.”

Man goes to mountain. 

Man seeks to know the meaning of his existence. 

Mountain tells man to mind your own business.

I guess it’s just not that easy. 

No one will just tell us how each of us is to make our difference in this world. 

Of course, there is faith and religious teachings to guide us.

But each and every one of us must find our path to G-d and our mission to his world. 

In doing that we struggle through life’s trials and tribulations. 

It is painful at times, but we change and grow especially when the pain of what we are doing wrong becomes greater than the pleasure we gain from it. 

The meaning is in the journey and in the destination we seek. 

Our paths are not straight, but winding and hilly and not without obstacles–but it is a trek not only to the mountain, but to the very heavens itself. 😉

Awesome Turtle

This turtle was awesome. 

Another hiker found him at the top of the mountain.


When he first showed it to us, the turtle’s head was completely hiding in its shell.


After a while, the turtle decided to poke its head out and check out the scenario, and us. 


As you can see, both the shell and the turtle’s body is this incredible art deco combination of yellow and black in all sorts of cool geometric shapes. 


In the Fall season’s leaves, I imagine this turtle blends right on in–making it am even more amazing find today. 


The guy holding the turtle put him down for a second, and this turtle was almost off and running at turtle speed. 


Cute little fellow!
