Sunrise at camp in Hope Valley. It was a beautiful weekend start to finish. Great camp food, great company and conversation, a tough 11-mile hike with a big reward, intense and hilarious board games, total disconnection from everything else. Good stuff.

“Sometimes I remind myself that I almost skipped the party, that I almost went to a different college, that the whim of a minute could have changed everything and everyone. Our lives, so settled, so specific, are built on happenstance.”

—Anna Quindlen, from Every Last One (Random House, 2010)
