Skiing into the New Year

While New Year’s Eve looked different for most people, my friends and I decided to make it somewhat normal and still spend it together. We took a trip to the Pocono Mountains to ring in the New Year on the mountain. My friends are skiers and snowboarders, take day trips all the time and have season passes for the mountains, but this was the first time they rented a house and spent the weekend.

A Walk in the Woods

Last Saturday I joined my daughter's family for a hike on a nearby complex of trails in Jacksonville, Oregon. Today this small town of about 3,000 residents boasts a collection of boutiques, restaurants and small shops and hosts the summertime Britt Festival, a concert series, but in its early days it was a bustling gold mining town, the county seat and the largest settlement in Oregon. It boomed after gold was discovered in 1851 at Rich Gulch, but after the gold ran out and the railroad passed it by in 1884, it quietly settled down as an agricultural town, and the world mostly passed it by.

Amid the chaos, worry, anger and disbelief that last week’s events caused, I was reminded one must not lose sight of what’s important. No matter how much better things may feel or seem, one must never let one’s guard down. I was also reminded one can’t pour from an empty cup — practicing what you preach is easier said than done — and being on guard all the time is no way to live.
