HAPPY IS THE ONE WHO ATTENDS TO THE NEEDY.
How easily are you irritated by the needs of others? Give away some of your time today, but do it in a therapeutic sense. Attending to the needy also includes surprise acts of kindness.
I love this image. I took it coming off Mission Peak yesterday morning. Little Mr. Squirrel sitting on a rock. He's just living his life. Sometimes we forget to do that.
Today enjoy your life and give thanks for being alive. -Catra

yo Catra! When do you leave for PCT? My housemate, who did the Furnace Creek 508 solo in 2005, starts June 1st. He hopes to be back in time to crew for the 508 this year...
Have a great time.

Hey Matt-
I start May 24th. I won't see your housemate unless I slow down so tell him hi and good luck.
I hope to finish in 78 days.
Hey you doing the whole Furnace creek 508?? Linda's doing again so most likely I'll crew her.
Have a great Summer.
XOXO,
Catra

Gotta love the wildlife on runs. I've been choosing my tails partly based on the opportunity to catch up with the animals. Good luck for the PCT, looks like your prep. has been going really well.

Love the squirrel and love the sentiment. I've been an uber-grump lately feeling like I can't give an ounce. Now that's just silly!

Your PCT trip is so soon!

Hey Jason-
Thanks for the post. It's going well. I'm super happy my friend Jerry is going to give us a ride to the border. I'm very lucky to have such wonderful friends. Friends are so important.
