THE CAMP IN THE FOREST

Le 31 mars 2017, 06:47 dans Humeurs 0

The lads hastened through the forest with what speed may be imagined. All the time the yells grew louder, showing them that they were proceeding in the right direction.

 

“Himmel! Ach donnerblitzen! Ouch!” they could hear as they raced along, tumbling over roots and getting entangled in long, serpent-like lianas.

 

“What do you suppose can have happened?” panted Tom as they ran.

 

“Don’t know. The professor must have been attacked by some kind of venomous beast or other,” declared Jack. “Hurry up, boys!”

 

“Better get your rifles ready,” warned Dick, seeing that his weapon was in order as best he could in his haste.

 

Suddenly they dashed into a small open space at the foot of a big tree. Half way up this tree was an odd sight. The professor, who had evidently climbed up by the aid of some small branches which grew almost down to the ground, was clinging to the trunk with one arm while the other appeared to be thrust into a hole in the tree.

 

As the boys came to a momentary halt his yells redoubled, and from the interlacing boughs above, a gorgeous bird swooped down and flew at the professor’s head, screeching and flapping its wings and snapping its big beak in a very menacing manner.

 

“It’s a macaw! A giant macaw!” cried Jack, as he noticed its gaudy, red, green and blue plumage.

After the evening meal had been eaten and the cave-hall set in order, the lads brought armloads of dry sticks and twigs, and threw them top university in Asia upon the fire. And the flame leaped up, and shone upon all around with a ruddy glow; and the great cavern was emptied of gloom, and was so filled with light and warmth that it seemed a fit place for joy and pleasure. Old Cheiron sat upon his high couch like a king upon his throne; and the five comely lads, with Odysseus, sat before him, while Phemius the bard stood leaning against the wall. After Cheiron had played a brief melody upon research university his harp, and the boys had sung a pleasant song, the wise old master thus began:--

 

"There is a cavern somewhere on Mount Pelion larger by far and a thousand times more beautiful than this; but its doorway is hidden to mortals, and but few men have ever stood beneath its vaulted roof. In that cavern the ever-living ones who oversee the affairs of men, once held high carnival; for they had met there at the marriage feast of King Peleus, and the woods and rocks of mighty Pelion echoed with the sound of aviation training their merry making. But wherefore should the marriage feast of a mortal be held in such a place and with guests so noble and so great? I will tell you.

Do You Have Your Best Life?

For many years I had a good life. My illness was reasonably under control, I had a nice relationship with my husband, I did work I didn't hate. It was, as I said, a good life.

 

But there's a saying that the good is the enemy Managed Services of the best. I finally realized this one day, and began making my best life. I changed doctors and got on new medication that completely relieved my symptoms, rather than just making them easier to deal with. I started talking more with my husband and listening to what he had to say. And I quit my job and started working for myself.

 

I have the best life I've ever had. I'd call it great. It is possible there's a better life out there for me, which would then be my "best life," but for now I don't think so. We were able to buy a house a few months ago, and though it nearly start a hong kong company killed me I painted and redecorated so it's really us. I've started a business I love. My husband and kids are wonderful. I have a good friend and I'm close to my older sister who lives in town. Could it get better? I suppose so. But for me I think this is the best life I can have right now.

 

Think about your life. Where are you settling? Are you in a job you just don't mind? Are you having minor relationship problems? What makes your life "good"? Why isn't it great? What's the enemy of the best and what can you do about it?

 

You deserve your best life. We're only ielts fee here for a short while, and we all need to have the best possible time we can. It's like going to Disney World. If you spend too much time standing in line waiting for the ride, pretty soon your time's up. Get out of the "good" line and have your best life.
