A Life Shared Is Worth Living

For us adventurers, we find power in the quietude of the outdoors. The rustling of leaves. A chirp of a chickadee. The howls of hungry coyotes under the pale moon light. These moments are what we seek—a stillness only found in the rawness of nature, beckoning us from the busyness we escape. But there are times when these things seem insignificant, lost in our own memories with no one to revisit with and reflect upon. Just as we are replenished in the solitude of our travels, so do the famed words of Christopher McCandless ring true, “Happiness only real when shared.”
