All it takes is one idea to unlock your dreams. I have never really had the feeling I have now, but I woke up this morning. I say it like that…because I felt like something had been unlocked. Something clicked in my sleep. I feel…like something fantastic is going to happen.

I have this feeling to act on all day…and I have to tell you its an amazing feeling. Funny thing is, I have sat on a bench and looked out onto the ocean like the man above has before. The sea has a way of putting you in your place, and I have to tell you I miss the salty air.

The snowpack is melting, so I am going fishing soon. It has been far too long since I have driven up to the mountains. There is something so peaceful about going back to the place where I have been since I was a little boy. I think its because I have living memories of me, my dad, and my dog climbing over the rocks and catching fish. I have moments when I go there now when I see those memories. They make me smile.

    This was beautiful and I’m going to follow your blog because I like the idea behind it. The world does need better men and I want to better myself.

    Thank you for this spark of inspiration.

    Excellent point about that moment that unlocks. For me, it’s about locking down with it and finishing it to completion. Oy… 😀

    I used to get this feeling a lot. I don’t know what happened, but now everything seems hazy. This kinda makes me want to start searching for that feeling again…thank you.

    I get this feeling from time to time, it feels good. It’s a kind of excited, anticipatory feeling. It usually leads to some creative breakthrough. I’m pleased for you Evan, let us know what yours leads to. 🙂
