There is a rapture on the lonely shore;
There is society, where none intrudes.
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more...

-Lord Byron

The insta-story family reunion

Our family reunions now consist of days spent up at my brother's cabin in Fruitland, Utah.

I'm not complaining, I love it up there. I won't lie though, I miss the days of going to new places with the family, but that hasn't happened for ten years, since sister died.

With all of us getting older though, Fruitland is easier on everyone.
I created an Instagram insta-story for the weekend reunion for me to enjoy on here.

I doubt anyone will see it until I'm gone and the family goes through this site to see memories of my life.

If that happens, I hope you enjoy it. The music is inspired by crazylegs and Aaz from our time together driving back from the lake.

time with the Littles

A strong bout of melancholy and terminable sadness take hold after I return from seeing the littles.

November was the last time we all were together, and little Hope wasn't born yet.
I think sickness has finally come knocking on my door, or perhaps just old age is showing itself in my face, no matter what it is I suppose.

I've limited time left for making memories.
I let the shutter fly, and spend my waning years watching my littles here, their smiles help me through another day.

I hope they remember me in a good light.
