From Disney to Danby

It is not just the miles--it is an entire lifetime and state of mind.

From Fantasyland and the carefree joys of childhood punctuated by happy stories and scary monsters, and into the reality of life and living.

A small town boy living in the big metropolitan area cheering for an "I think I can" baseball team who this year keep finding ways to win rather than discovering new and more painful ways to lose.

I know life can be simpler--but can it be better?

Family and friends make it all work day after day.

And the escape back to Fantasyland, whether Disney or the beach, provide the much needed pause in the middle of the frenetic pace of life.

Tomorrow I am off again to Danby and family. The counterpoint to Disney yet the same pause in the frenetic pace of life. There is no fantasy in Danby--just a rugged reality.

Maybe in their extreme difference they are almost the same, Disney and Danby.
