  • 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

AMAZING!!! You guys live a pretty amazing life!!


Thank you for bringing us all up to date. I agree with Alison, you do live an amazing life. I really enjoyed looking at all the photos from this past year. I'm so glad I had a chance to ski with you at Mt. Abram. It is an incredible place and perfect for the boys. I loved the video of Arlo skiing unassisted. He will be flying down the slopes with Si and Levi this winter. Maybe one day I could have a "tiny house" about the size of the turkey's coop somewhere on the property!!! As Lionel would say, "This is the life" and you are living it!
