deep thoughts pilgrim trails written by Jana February 22, 2007 Today’s mantra from Jen: May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view.

Reply jana February 22, 2007 - 8:07 pm what you’ve got to remember about Edward Abbey is that he hates people. His only love is the land. And he thinks he’s really the only person who can truly enjoy the land. That said, I really loved Desert Solitaire, but in a different way from Refuge Reply Reg-o-Mik-o-ramarama February 22, 2007 - 10:18 pm That’s a beautiful blessing, I might have to steal it Reply Penny L.

Reply amelia February 28, 2007 - 3:21 am i just have very little patience for misanthropes. i think it’s one of the more narcissistic attitudes people indulge in. but someday i’ll give abbey another chance. because i love the land he loves, too.
