Last Day

Muir Woods

Walter said, I could live here.

Allan was at Grace Cathedral for morning service. We were at the woods for our service. Both stunning.

I, uh... wasn't really thinking about God, though.

Zachary woke up in a mood. He stayed in a mood all day.

Smile, Zachary.

This was as good as it got today.

Not even some stern fatherly words helped.

A friend once said, of a trip to France with her 12 year old daughter and 10 year old son, the boy almost ruined the whole trip. Nothing made him happy. He didn't want to go anywhere or do anything. Finally, she said, tough, and dragged him along.

When he got home, he talked glowingly to his friends about the trip.

I'm sure Zachary will do the same.

He may not remember his brother's effort to cheer him up. But I think he will remember how rich the air was and the size of the trees.

We leave early tomorrow morning. I hope we beat the storm.

tommorrow, a list of new years resolutions.
