While in New York, I had dinner with James Dybas, an actor I admire. Always daring, he was newly returned from a trip to Thailand and Cambodia. While there, he bathed an elephant, and then went swimming with it. I thought of a line from Oscar Hammerstein: "The corn is as high as an elephant's eye."
As I write, Dybas is sorting through 2,000 photo images, hoping to arrive at a definitive 50. He says that if he hadn't been an actor, he would have been a photographer-- and his images are artful.
Dybas always inspires me because he is always up for adventure. We may not all be able to swim with elephants today, but there is always an adventure available to us.
What small adventure could you take today, right where you are?
