  • 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

You should order a merino wool balaclava & glove liners!

Have you seen any northern lights yet?


Mark! This is amazing! I can't believe it is so cold...and that your coffee froze like that. What a great experience! The boys and Richard loved the CAT story and photo too. Do you remember that we had to keep the bus going for 15 days, so it wouldn't freeze up. Like a different world, isn't it!? Keep up the blogging, we love it!


Mark we really enjoyed all the new photos. It gives us such a good idea of what working in the Yukon is like. I'm just amazed that your coffee froze so quickly. I loved the video clip of the squeaky snow, it made me cold just watching it!
Get some really warm gloves and socks. Mom


like whoa!

What do people wear in those temperatures to keep warm? Did you have to buy all new winter gear? I can't imagine. And I thought we were having a cold winter. Are you staying in a trailer or in a heated igloo?? Bet you would like to jump in the hot springs right about now. Thanks for sharing. Want me to send Ruby out that way to keep you warm?! She loves the cold.
