A peaceful morning scene near Fox Point on Lake of Bays in Ontario, Canada. Filmed August 2018. Sorry for the vertical video.

I am fortunate to be able to spend some of my summer vacations at one of Ontario’s most beautiful lakes — Lake of Bays, where my significant other’s family owns a lake cabin that has been passed down through the generations cine the 1930’s. The water is clean and crysta...

Allen Coin liked a quote
The War of Art by Steven Pressfield
“The most pernicious aspect of procrastination is that it can become a habit. We don't just put off our lives today; we put them off till our deathbed.

Never forget: This very moment, we can change our lives. There never was a moment, and never will be, when we are without the power to alter our destiny. This second we can turn the tables on Resistance.

This second, we can sit down and do our work.”
Steven Pressfield

The War of Art by Steven Pressfield
“The professional learns to recognize envy-driven criticism and to take it for what it is: the supreme compliment. The critic hates most that which he would have done himself if he had had the guts.”

Haruki Murakami
“The ground we stand on looks solid enough, but if something happens it can drop right out from under you. And once that happens, you've had it: things'll never be the same. All you can do is go on living alone down there in the darkness.”
Haruki Murakami, After Dark

Alice Walker
“As you sit, make peace also with the reality that, after you die, it won't matter to you how you are remembered; you will not be here to experience it. All the grand things that you do or say, all the skyscrapers you build and cover with gold, your elegant tombstone, all will be completely forgotten eventually. Even your children, and their children, too, will be forgotten. That being so, perhaps it is best to begin to erase your presence well before you leave the scene.”
Alice Walker

Steven Pressfield
“The sign of the amateur is overglorification of and preoccupation with the mystery. The professional shuts up. She doesn't talk about it. She does her work.”
