Today I am heading off to summer camp with Troop 17 at Boxwell Scout Reservation. A week in the woods is better than the best week at work, and it such a blessing to mentor these young men in the "school of the woods." I also expect I'll have plenty of free time to wander around in the woods and just enjoy being in nature. Life is good!

"For those who have eyes to see and ears to hear,
the forest is at once a laboratory, a club, and a Temple."
