Man/Woman is truly the measure of all things

As I listened to the latest episode of TWIT I couldn’t help but be amazed by Leo’s telling of Roz Savage’s quest to row across the Pacific Ocean. I mean, here I am meandering in self-pity, complaining about bills and being out of shape and yet there’s an amazing woman right now somewhere in the Pacific, 3 days in her journey, just rowing away and undaunted by how incredible this feat is. It really puts things into perspective.

Funny enough, around the same time my wife also discovered a Frenchman named Xavier Rosset who is trying to live on his own in an uninhabited island for 300 Days. His website is in French so it is a little hard for me to fully understand what is written there; fortunately, another blogger, Cheyenne Morrison, wrote about Xavier and I was able to read about his experiment in full.

These two tales definitely emphasize the old saying, “Where there’s a will there’s a way.”
