Yukon Legend, exploded

This has occupied my time lately--getting a permit to plop a faux campfire in the middle of an existing fire ring at our Big Bear Camp. That, and scrubbing out the grout in my kitchen counter.

More, later.

Be Very Happy
Montalcino, Italy
June 2007

"The world is this way, we wish the world were that way, and our experience of the world—how we see it, remember it, and imagine it—is a mixture of stark reality and comforting illusion. We can't spare either. If we were to experience the world exactly as it is, we'd be too depressed to get out of bed in the morning, but if we were to experience the world exactly as we want it to be, we'd be too deluded to find our slippers."
--from the book Stumbling on Happiness, by Daniel Gilbert
