Emotional portrait of a 67yo paddler

Getting older may mean slowing down and taking fewer risks, but it doesn’t mean stopping. Never stop doing what you love. Never stop exploring. Never stop wondering about life’s mysteries and what lies beyond this world. It’s something we as travelers know, innately feel — we’ll wander this world until our last days.

This lovely video encapsulates all that inside one woman’s conscience:

Do our mothers still have dreams, hopes, and journeys to make? At age 67, Melody reflects on her life, her hopes, her failures, and her dreams while exploring the magnificent waters and canyons of the Utah desert.

Someday, we’ll all be there — our best days behind us, all those we knew and loved gone, a past looming large over an ever-shrinking future, reflecting on a live well lived — if we’re so lucky.
