I’ve been doing some thinking. I’ve been crunching some numbers.
To accomplish Tuesday’s boldly declared goal, I would have to walk 10.6 miles a day, every day, for the next 94 days. And seeing as how I have walked 0 miles since Monday, I’m thinking that 1,000 before Labor Day may have been a WEE bit overly ambitious.
Oh well – I am still going to walk. I will walk until kingdom come. And mark my words: I WILL climb at least 6 14ers this summer. That, gentlefolk, is money in the bank.

A few years ago, I saw Rosie O’Donnell on one of the morning news shows – you know, when I still had a TV and Rosie still had the media’s love and devotion. The interviewer asked her if she could go back and tell her younger self one thing, what would it be?
I’ll never forget Rosie’s response. She said, “I would tell myself that everything is going to happen, just like you dreamed – it’s just going to feel differently than what you expected.”
I don’t know why, but I’m kind of experiencing some of that right now.
