Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow.
The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.
~ Abraham Lincoln
Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.

This photo was the last day of the 2015 ski season at Mt Hotham. Shrinking snow and rich sunsets signalling the end of another winter as the population of the village shrinks. People return to other places and other parts of their lives, lodges are cleaned and closed.

~ Lloyd Jones
I recently read a post entitled Leading the Life you Want which I thought was worth sharing. Achieving your life goals probably has timeless appeal in the busy world of work.

One of the lodge manager stalwarts at Mt Hotham is Liz Hanger. In her third season now, it is hard to believe her initial reaction to a suggestion of working in a ski resort was – “oh … I think I’m passed that!” Instead she has done just that, turning her new vocation into her vacation.
