Volunteer House

post mentions goings-on at the house

In the process of writing this blog, I realized I don't actually have a picture of my entire family together, but we'll work on that. For now, a smattering of the people I love.

Where (Do?) we settle?

With the holidays approaching, volunteer Jenn says, “I’m thinking of all the tables around which will sit all the people I love: here, near, north, south, internationally, in memory.

Let's be honest, though. My belief that I am a character in a fairytale is made plausible by moments like this...it's too much unworldly beauty to not be fiction!
