The first time I ever played disc golf was in Fernie. I was home from University for the summer, and new friends took me for a round. I had no idea what disc golf was, and when we parked outside of a private residence on Anderson Road, I was quite confused and then quite impressed that someone would create such a wonderful community asset and allow people to play for free.

For What It’s Worth

I appreciate I’m not writing an advice column, there are people far better equipped. But, at this writing, I have been asked to present scholarships at Fernie’s two high schools and say a few words. And, while I also appreciate that I’m not being asked to provide the commencement address (for reference look up the transcript of David Foster-Wallace’s This is Water for a singularly outstanding example), it is hard not to offer some advice for graduates.
