Quote That Inspires Me

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
-Mark Twain

First Thing I Built

When I was about 12 years old I built a two-story fort with my brother and three neighbor boys in the woods from the ground up. We dug the post holes, cut down trees for the four corner support posts, built the structure with a ladder between floors, and painted the fort camouflage. We also built a “look-out” stand so someone could guard it.
