If there were a place in the world where autumn lasted half the year, I would find a way to move there. Like this.

Every summer my family goes up to a lake in the high Uintahs for one week away from any kind of media or technology. It’s a week where we do a lot of swimming, hiking, and sitting around talking to each other. We play Yahtzee and make kites and cook over the fire. We stay in one-room cabins that sometimes have chipmunk visitors, unlike this gorgeous summer cabin from Apple Fall. My one geeky brother-in-law who struggles the most with the no technology thing downloads geo-caching maps into his phone so he can take all the kids treasure hunting. It’s the best week of the year. All of the fun games by Elle Kirshner of Second Spaces at the Arcade got me thinking about the fun times ahead this summer. I particularly liked the chinese checkers set, but all of the games look great and I am sure they will be making further appearances in the future!

This is for Stewart, who makes no effort to hide his disdain for winter. The days of spring are upon us, at least in SL, my friend.
Again rejoicing Nature sees
Her robe assume its vernal hues,
Her leafy locks wave in the breeze
All freshly steep’d in morning dews.
-Composed in Spring, Robert Burns
The rest of the poem is not so full of joy, expressing as it does the loss of a beloved but uncaring young lady. However, we certainly feel his awareness that the rest of the world is coming to life, even though he does not feel a part of it. You can read the entire poem here.
