Never to late to feel young – ½ minute read

Smallmouth Bass

We want to update our friends on our journey. Who am I kidding? I really want to show you a picture of my fish. This is a smallmouth bass. I actually caught five today in Arkansas’ Buffalo River. We’ve holed up in a cabin nearby waiting for the pandemic to ease.

But the fish does represent progress toward our own more-than-ordinary lives. As a teenager I lived for fish. And smallmouth caught in a river were my greatest joy. For a few hours today I felt like a teenager again.

Let me challenge you. Recall some wonderful experiences from when you were younger and try to repeat them. Some experiences may not be reproducible. But recapturing the feeling may be possible, if not the experience. I had never expected to catch smallmouth again like when I was fifteen. It’s never too late to feel young.

    It is so good to see your smile, Drew. What a fun thing to be able to do while waiting out this pandemic. Enjoy your cabin and don’t ease on up the road until things are safe where you are going. What fun It must be not to have to wear a mask or gloves while looking that fish in the face.

    Looking forward to following your journey and wishing you good health, fun adventures & much love.

    Love this Drew! I bought a one speed bike today and peddling around the neighborhood brought joy and remembrance when I was a kid!
