Your life is not lying in wait in the future like a wild animal or some ominous destiny. Nor is it hidden in the heavens, like a paradise or promise. Nor is it shut up in the cave or the prison of your past. It is here and now; it is what you live and what you do. At the heart of being; at the heart of the present; at the heart of everything – in the great current of life, of reality.

Our Cabin...

We haven't been to the cabin much since last summer, but after arriving here tonight I was, immediately, reminded why I love it here, so much. It's only an hour and a half away from our permanent home, but it's a whole different world for us - a, totally, different atmosphere. At home in Plainfield, it's easy to get pulled away from each other with the computers, tv's, toys, the piano, housework, etc., but here at the cabin it's just about us, as a family, spending real quality time distractions. Within fifteen minutes of walking in the door, we had the stereo going, the popcorn popping in the air-popper, and a game of monopoly started. For almost two hours, we played, and laughed together. When the game was over we even got a little dancing in! It's was a perfect night. I look forward to the many years ahead, and all the great memories we will make here.


  1. By far the best investment you and Dave ever made. So many great memories waiting to happen for your family and friends in the future. Love you, Dad
