Desiderata
Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs; for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be critical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy.

Max Ehrmann 1927

The sun hasn’t set here in months.
I’m sitting in absolute silence amidst a bright white plain of gritty ice crystals on a melting ice floe 14,000 feet above the sea floor. In the distance, I can see the ship that brought me here and the Russian with the Gun. She’s here to protect me from hungry polar bears - and she’s not smiling. This is the North Pole -- a place so far away in distance and experience, it’s hard to know what to expect. A terra incognita of fantasy and saga; home to the Narwhal, Polar Bear, and the odd elf and his boss. Until recently, virtually unknown.

If you don’t have a 3D Robotics Inc. drone to explore the arctic, a 70’s era Russian MI-2 helicopter will do just fine. Stepping aboard this vintage helicopter requires the suspension of one’s normal life preservation instincts – pay no attention to the duct tape! And it was totally worth it. These shipboard helicopter pilots are some of the best in the world – and the scenery, to (almost) die for! http://www.outsideonline.com/2011026/no-place-go-south

My article in Outside Magazine.  No Place To Go But South: A Journey to the North Pole.
There is an Arctic glimmer in the eyes of many nations around the world right now. There is no turning back—the Arctic is about to get a lot busier and a lot warmer. And it’s nearly untouched beauty is at risk of being lost forever.
