A little bit of this and, a little bit of that, makes a little bit of me.

Joy is

manifest, everywhere.

Imagine a place with rustic log cabins,

spacious lodge,

breathtaking hiking trails,


and a sandy beach

where children are treated with respect by adults,

where needs are met without disapproving stares,

where delightful people of all ages laugh, cry, dance, play ASSASSIN and other games, create, reunite with old friends and make new ones, confront their fears, act silly, talk politics, celebrate for who they are,

line up orderly, volunteerily, felicitously for breakfast and dinner, eager to share their chore duties almost daily,

visit one another at all hours,

greet each other in their paths with smiles,

help with each others’ kids,

learn new ideas and put them to use right then,

and feel completely at ease that this is a safe haven for kids with friends even if you have just met these strangers not too long ago.

Life is good here at Chautauqua!

Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
