My inspiration for this record of my days:

“The biggest mistake I made [as a parent] is the one that most of us make. . . . I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of [my three children] sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages six, four, and one. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in such a hurry to get on to the next thing: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less” -Anna Quindlen

Other Worldly

We spent last week on Mt. Graham.  It was rainy and foggy and magical.

mt graham fog-1 Jeff and I went for a ride on the 4 wheeler, and I kept expecting a unicorn to step out of the forest.  Or maybe a resurrected being.

It’s amazing to me that such a beautiful place is plopped right in the middle of the desert!

More about the trip later.
