"A Summer For Passing Forward..."








I wrote for the last page of the 'Adventure Muse': "Passing things like your experience, a 'Summit Stone', or adventure quotes, forward, is a way of giving back and sharing wisdom, strength, and hope. If you enjoyed your 'Summit Stone' and the Adventure Muse, then pass something along to someone else you see on their own journey"...
A few selected fellow adventurers from out there have taken this to heart... And this I am so grateful for...
There are so many paths to take, rivers and lakes and trails to explore, distant islands and elusive summits to quest for... On occasion I have asked if certain fellow adventurers might be intrigued in becoming part of the karma of this small stone endeavor... And some indeed have...
This is a concept, a sharing theme, that was suggested to me by a close friend; one who lives very much within the wild places...
There are a great many adventures out there, and so many elements of the wild places I will never see, wild lands never to set foot upon; that I still so enjoy imagining and musing over...
I ponder while walking one path how a fellow adventurer is on that very same day, making their way to one of their own elusive summit experiences...
So, my sincere appreciation and thanks to you dear friends, who have shared in this journey, the efforts and messages of giving back and passing forward, the mystery and karma of it all, and especially for the smile of a Finder who discovers a small gift that we all shared in placing together...

As much as I love the warmth of summer, I also love the crisp air and colors of autumn.
