    Life Pairing: Deep-woods backpacking with a good friend. 

    Literary Pairing: “I have always lived violently, drunk hugely, eaten too much or not at all, slept around the clock or missed two nights of sleeping, worked too hard and too long in glory, or slobbed for a time in utter laziness. I've lifted, pulled, chopped, climbed, made love with joy and taken my hangovers as a consequence, not as a punishment.”

    ― John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America
    PS: Charley is his wife’s 10-year-old French Poodle
