Today was a dream come true–a cruise on Glacier Bay. I felt awash in joy all the way out, but the moment we turned around at Pacific Glacier, I felt an unmeasurable sorrow.
I am nearly exhausted emotion, overwhelmed by the majesty and complexity of the mountains and deeply sad as we leave them behind.
I want to stand up on the ship and yell, “Stop! Stop!” It’s crazy to leave such beauty behind. I want to stay here, to explore every valley and mountain until are so much a part of me there is no possibility of losing them when I depart.
There is as much to know and learn and see here as a man could wrestle with in a lifetime.
