The Not-So-Ordinary Events of Life

I just finished a 9-day journey through the first 187 miles of Grand Canyon.  A magnificent group of people assembled at Lee’s Ferry, clamored aboard two rafts, and set off on an adventure of a lifetime.  We found ourselves at science camp on the third night.  This...

Only 2 Days

The craziness of life can be all consuming.  Days roll by like the cars on a runaway train.  There are brief moments when we get a break from the fire hose of responsibility and expectation.  We cherish those times like the final drop of water on a desert trek.  Every day matters...
