    "One final paragraph of advice: do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am - a reluctant enthusiast....a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it?s still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, the lovely, mysterious, and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much; I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound men and women with their hearts in a safe deposit box, and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this; You will outlive the bastards".
    ― Edward Abbey

    May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome,
    dangerous, leading to the most amazing view.
    May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.
    May your rivers flow without end, meandering through
    pastoral valleys tinkling with bells,
    past temples and castles and poets' towers
    into a dark primeval forest
    where tigers belch and monkeys howl,
    through miasmal and mysterious swamps
    and down into a desert of red rock, blue mesas, domes
    and pinnacles and grottos of endless stone,
    and down again into a deep vast ancient unknown chasm
    where bars of sunlight blaze on profiled cliffs,
    where deer walk across the white sand beaches,
    where storms come and go as lightning clangs upon the high crags,
    where something strange and more beautiful and more full of wonder
    than your deepest dreams waits for you
    --- beyond that next turning of the canyon walls.
    - Edward Abbey

    I'll see your Edward Abbey

    and raise you William S Burroughs-
    This seems to resonate somewhat for 2013.
    Delightfully avant garde.
    Great imagery.
