While not always successful in maintaining the attitude, I try to find pleasure in simple things.
For example, when out hunting, I really don't care if I kill or even see something. Sure, I'd RATHER see something but just being there, in the woods, away from the craziness of life, is immensely satisfying.
During a recent trip to the woods, I checked my rear view mirror and all I could see was my Honda Rancher 4 wheeler looking back at me. I couldn't
fight back the smile due to nothing more than the anticipation of the day ahead.
(A future post will address the dangers of mixing photography and driving.)
