May your travels be myriad and exploits as kaleidoscopic as the desert abloom in spring. May you encounter many a curiously wild and unchartered way. May your days at play in the field, creek, woods, paved or dusty road be unnumbered and exhausting. May you always run, skip or jump to your joy. And, in the end, may your shoes resemble the muddy hole or craggy cliff you conquered: for clean shoes sadly speak of an uninteresting life. Do not settle for uninteresting! Live, love your life. Kick up the dust, toe the earth. Nevermore sidestep, but immerse in puddles; and give your soul and shoes delighted memories.
