  • 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

Mark, wonderful photos. The town of Whitehorse reminded me a little of Durango. I'm so glad you posted the photos, gives us all an idea about your life away from home. It is a beautiful landscape. We'd love to see more of Faro.

wow Mark! How amazing that you get to travel to the Yukon. It must be beautiful. I had no idea you were up there. Where does one fly into to arrive in the Yukon. How cool you go to see a dog race. I one time met the woman who won the ididerade and some of her dogs. What a great story of how they train and what a race like that takes. Enjoy your experience.


Uncle Mark, I watched the dog sled over and over and over at Nana's house. I like the dog sled races and want to watch it again NOW.

Love, Oscar
