UPDATE: It sounds like NASA pulled off the impossible again — a successful Mars landing that necessitated a whole lot of things going right. Despite the onslaught of daily negative news, these are exciting times to be alive, IMHO.
I have learned that in life
few endeavors are more heartening for the sole
than sunrise beach walking.
It is not difficult
nor is it expensive.
Just get your ass out of bed early,
grab a pair of earphones with good music,
find a hardpack sandy beach that goes on forever,
and put one foot in front of the other.
You will thank yourself afterwards.
