Never forget...

Never forget that we are sharing this planet with the likes of this.

(Full disclosure: this picture was taken in New Hampshire, but still...)

How to be welcome at any occasion

If you want to be welcome at any occasion, showing up in a cookie van might be a good idea. When I encountered this van, however, the proprietor was going for  a hike on Mt. Mitchell rather than selling cookies, so I can't report.

The family (and friends) of Jenifer Morgan at her burial in the Celo Community Cemetery.

Jenifer's grave. We are going to miss her strong spirit, her ability to listen to everyone, and her dedication to making a better world--not to mention all those e-mails about local politics. There will be a memorial service on October 19.

People milling about at the wonderful gathering in honor of Tom Trout. It involved words, music, p├ętanque, pizza, photographs, lots of good memories--and Theo! Thanks to the Trout family and a whole bunch of Tom's friends for making this happen.

Mike says a few words.
