A great man….
“A great man is one who leaves other at a loss after he is gone.” Paul Valery
I am at a loss today, because a man that I consider great has passed. He would not have agreed with that description…but I believe it is true. I am glad he is at peace now, and I will miss him. I had the privilege of sharing the outdoors with him on a number of occasions. Here are two spots that I think of in connection with him.
Heron Pond, southern Illinois
Paint Creek, Cherokee National Forest
Rest in peace Marlin. And thanks for everything….
