Gone Angling

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.
