Northward I will go, well, after I drop the Lovely Melis at the airport, finalize a bit of business, and conduct one last inventory of supplies required for this venture. I should return in a week. At least that is the plan currently. I leave you with some quotes of Izzak Walton.
And let me tell you that every misery I miss is a new blessing.
I have known a very good, fisher angle diligently four or six hours for a river carp, and not have a bite
[T]is not all fishing to fish.
You will find angling to be like the virtue of humility, which has a calmness of spirit and a world of other blessings attending upon it. (I’ve found this to be true - ed.)
That which is everybody’s business, is nobody’s business.
Let the blessing of St. Peter’s Master be . . . upon all that are lovers of virtue; and dare trust in His providence; and be quiet; and go a-Angling.
