I’ve just set up camp (read: “parked”) in the Tuskegee National Forest of Alabama, where I hope to settle down for the weekend and get some writing done (as well as finish up the interview materials for BATGAP).
When camping in forests, I like to arrive earlier in the week to find a good site (solitude, nature, internet, sun). Seasoned campers know this arrive-early-and-stake-a-claim strategy well, so I was surprised—it being a Thursday with a nice weekend in the forecast—to find no one else in these woods.
A number of people have told me that I’m one of the luckiest men they know. I usually reply, “The less there is of you, the more there is of Her… and the more there is of Her, the luckier your life will become.”
But maybe Meister Eckhart said it best:
Whoever desires to be given everything, must first give everything away.
