Inspirational Words from Brian Shulz

Brian Shulz
Sometimes I have things to say, and sometimes they've already been said by better people in better ways. Brian Shulz of Cape Falcon Kayaks is a friend of mine who designs and builds wonderful skin-on-frame kayaks. He also writes beautifully about kayaking, adventures, organic farming, and life in general. He's faced some serious medical adversity in the past couple of years. His words and attitude really inspire me, and I would just like to encourage anyone who gets any pleasure out of reading my blog to check out his latest post. It's kind of heavy - his medical situation is not good - but it's also a great testament to his spirit and something that I think most paddlers can relate to. We all should be so lucky to live lives as full as his.

Do yourself a favor and read a little of his fine writing. Enjoy his beautiful pictures. Look around and appreciate his world for a moment. Maybe even leave him a comment - you don't have to know someone to thank them for sharing something beautiful with the world. Brian has shared a lot over the years - he's opened his home to me on more than one occasion, and he puts his whole heart into everything he does. There are few people who I look up to more. A simple thank you would brighten his day and that's definitely worth your time. Thank you for your time.
