Scott’s Big Adventures

When I was younger, I wanted to do something never done before. I wanted to conquer the world and stand on the tallest mountain. As I grow older I see every day as a new adventure. I’m fascinated at the things I can discover in my own garden. So, sharing my adventures with the older becomes more difficult as my definition of an adventure becomes less colloquial.

Below you can see some of my big adventures. And farther below you can see some littler adventures that I haven’t posted yet.

  • Everything. Yes, I believe everything is an adventure of exploring the unknown and experiencing things never experienced and creating things never created. The challenge is having the eyes to see it.

How to make a memorable moment

In celebration of my website’s 20th anniversary and my 50th lap around the sun, I’ve written an extra-special story about how I live a life worth living, including making memorable moments and how friends shed new light on life.
