We inherit plots. . . . There are only two or three in the world, five or six at most. We ride them like treadmills.

Why

 

A long time ago, I read a book called Walking Softly in the Wilderness. It's a Sierra Club book. The premise: to teach "backpackers how to enjoy a genuine wilderness experience through a common-sense approach to adventure that leaves nature undisturbed."

Undisturbed. The idea that nature should in no way be changed for your existence.

Every animal in nature changes the world for their existence. The Sierra Club asks something of us that we expect of nothing else in nature. It's an interesting idea, but unrealistic. More importantly, it defies our very purpose.

You're supposed to change things. You're supposed to change the world.

You were meant to disturb the world. It's why you're here.

Get busy.
