Mountains? Yeah, we climbed some mountains...

...but they were all in Washington. No mountains in Montana for us. Go figure!

Sherman Pass? Oh yeah.

Wauconda Pass? Maybe. No, seriously, we did it.

Loup-Loup Pass? It has a silly name.

Washington Pass, you ain't so tough!

Rainy Pass...was okay.

And here's my favorite picture of Sarah from the entire trip so far:



She's such a beauty.

Youse kids are adorable. I'm envious of your adventures and thrilled you're having a great time and are ok. The pictures are fantastic, it's good to be reminded how beautiful this country can be. It'll be marvy to have the blog updated more often now that you're on the west coast. Come home soon, that we may celebrate with the adding of chocolate to milk.

Be true to your school now!

This is a cross-posting of a comment I left on peacebang.com's recent post about my school, Starr King School for the Ministry. PeaceBang, who is apparently a UU Minister in the Northeast, posted a few days ago an item about my school's supposed "banning" of the term, "brown bag lunch," because of the racialized connotations of brown bags.* Her post was, to my reading, haughty and dismissive, and she seemed awfully pleased with her own wit and ability to take cheap shots at others with little to no basis for her opinions.

Suspicious? What month is it?

So I had a great post written on questions of agency and identity as explored through Robert Penn Warren's All the King's Men and High Fidelity (I focussed more on the film by Stephen Frears than on the original Nick Hornby book), and it mysteriously disappeared. I, of course, blame the government . The crux of my post was that letting outside events and relationships with other people shape your life is fundamentally selfish , and that each of us bears responsibility for claiming our own agency . One of my favorite lines from Richard Linklater's Waking Life is an offhanded remark by a passerby , late in the movie, who tells the nameless protagonist (played by Wiley Wiggins ) "As the pattern becomes more complex , it is no longer sufficient to be swept along," or something like the same. The patterns are becoming more complex, and we face peril if we are satisfied with passivity. But, like I said, that post got erased, so here's a BMW z3 Coupe,
