explore. dream. discover.

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. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
- Mark Twain

My Mexican friend Luis Perez-Eguiarte advised me once, "Que nadie te lo cuente." It roughly translates: 'Don't let anyone out-experience you in life.' Quite a mandate! An interesting suggestion, but likely a very exhausting approach to living. As my friend Lisa would immediately protest, "That sounds like you are comparing your life experience to someone else's? Why compare?! We should never compare."
