The Way Of Fortune
“The way of fortune is like the milky way in the sky; which is a number of smaller stars, not seen asunder, but giving light together; so it is a number of little and scarce discerned virtues, or rather faculties and customs, that make men fortunate” ~ Francis Bacon, Sr.
This night I was indeed a man of great fortune. Here is Mt. Banner, next to Thousand Island Lake in the Ansel Adams Wilderness, standing like a mole hill when seen in conjunction with the vastness of space and the bright immensity of the Milky Way.
