Hallowe'en, Remtide and Friends

Been a busy and fun fall.  We had our very good friend Conor visiting us from Toronto with huge success locally for his Kill Shakespeare enterprise, of course the usual Hallowe'en frenzy, and then an extended weekend in Nova Scotia's South Shore at the family homestead Remtide. 
On a more personal note, as I look at these pics and see how sweet and lovely are these kids, family, friends and landscape, I'm reminded how every day is indeed a gift. 

In the midst of complete chaos in the house recently, Chris extended his arms and said, "We call it surrender."  I've joked about it since but there is a deeper truth there that I admire.  Yes, surrender ourselves to the chaos to remember the goodness it contains.
