Paradise Found

I’ve never really understood John Milton’s epic work “Paradise Lost”, but I do know that when I find a bit of paradise, I don’t want to leave.  The flowered banks of crystal clear Spring Creek here at Collier Memorial State Park are such a place.  When I walk these banks in the early morning looking and listening for birds, my soul is touched in such a way I don’t want to leave. All this is my way of explaining why Jeanette and I have decided to accept our ranger’s offer and stay here for another month.


  1. We will miss you but know you are happy in Paradise!

  2. You forgot to check with me first! I guess it will be ok, but I do miss you two.

  3. Miss you too! May pop home on Wed, maybe have coffee with you all on Thur.
