The practice jerseys for the basketball program I coach, The Kash Eagles, is emblazoned with a screaming eagle with blood dripping from its talons and the phrase, “Get Some!”
Get some! A little wild, a little untamed. The phrase gets smiles and energy from the boys.
In his journal, Thoreau said the following:
"Whatever has not come under the sway of man is wild. In this sense original and independent men are wild—not tamed and broken by society.—Journal, 3 September 1851"
Life is too short to be completely tame. Looking for opportunities to be original and independent are good, an aimless walk in the woods is good.
One of my favorite people from the bible is John the Baptist. A desert dweller, wild, he was the one picked to proclaim the coming of the kingdom of heaven.
Wild! I love it! Now go get some!
