  • Actual happiness looks pretty squalid in comparison with the overcompensations for misery. And, of course, stability isn’t nearly so spectacular as instability. And being contented has none of the glamour of a good fight against misfortune, none of the picturesqueness of a struggle with temptation, or a fatal overthrow by passion or doubt. Happiness is never grand. - Aldous Huxley, Brave New World
  • Education
    "Must we always teach our children with books? Let them look at the stars and the mountains above. Let them look at the waters and the trees and flowers on Earth. Then they will begin to think, and to think is the beginning of a real education." -David Polis
  • "Above all, do not lose your desire to walk: every day I walk myself into a state of well-being and walk away from every illness; I have walked myself into my best thoughts, and I know of no thought so burdensome that one cannot walk away from it... but by sitting still, and the more one sits still, the closer one becomes to feeling ill... Thus if one just keeps walking, everything will be all right." -Soren Kierckgaard
  • Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. - Albert Camus
  • How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives. Annie Dillard

When are you guys coming to Maine?

it hit 90 degrees today!


Erik - don't torture me with news like that! It is 57 degrees here in Winnemucca and strong winds are blowing dust everywhere. I have allergies so bad I feel like I have the swine flu. I'm not sure when we are coming, maybe the end of May, not sure yet. See you then! Michelle


awesome pics. I am going to Portland in August...can't wait!


Love the new pics! The little astronaut is precious! Tiny the scientiist was so cute and smart! Those starffish- we have to go there!!


Really love the pictures! Si & Levi are so cute, and the coastal landscapes are breathtaking! Looking forward to seeing back in Maine soon.


Thanks for the link Michelle! We all loved looking at your photos and appreciate your advice on Tillamook. We think we will skip that and go to Cannon Beach!! Cody can't stop talking about the starfish Silas had!!
