The Grand Denali Lodge - my resting place for two days. It was at the top of the mountain looking down into the city of Denali.
I arrived around 4pm in Denali, got off the train, the Grand Denali Lodge came and picked up my luggage and brought it to my room (it was wonderful), the bus came and picked me up - and off I went up the curved road to the Grand Denali Lodge. Now I was lucky and stayed in a two room cabin instead of the lodge itself. That night the bus came and got me and off I went to a dinner play about the Gold Rush in Alaska.
The man below on the left was out table leader and every time we needed anything he had to raise and twirl his red and white napkin around in the air to call our girl over.
When I walked outside it was broad daylight. Talking about being confused and not tired. It's hard to be tired with daylight abounding.
Ever hear this by Goethe? Here's a little "Secret" for you . . .
"Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back-- Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation), there is one elementary truth that ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now."
I heard this about 20 years ago. I've read it and read it and read it and read it again. It always sounded so good and so powerful. It's hard to explain, but I think I'm 'just' beginning to understand it.
May this give us something to think about . . . something to dream about. . .something to commit too. . . . then Providence will move too.
