"I went to the woods because I wanted to live deliberately. I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life;
to put to rout all that was not life and not when I had come to die, discover that I had not lived." ~Henry David Thoreau

About Living

We escaped this weekend for our own family retreat. We were in a beautiful cabin in Wyoming, surrounded by some of the greatest beauty Mother Nature has to offer.  We did some crying, some laughing, and the tiniest bit of healing.  I took this photograph at the Grand Tetons, and these words of one of my favorite authors kept coming to mind.  This blog is about how we mourn and grieve for Garrett, but it's also how we live to honor him.  We live FOR him.  I'm enlarging this photo with the text and I'm framing it in our entry way.  If you would like the high resolution jpeg, please email me at vnandrew555@yahoo.com and say "teton picture" in the subject line.
