Hi All -
I am new to blogging, so hopefully set this up correctly. If anyone knows of something that should be enabled/disabled on the admin end, please let me know. To post a comment, click on "Comments" (even if it says 0) or the time of a post. It will take you to a separate page where you can post a comment, photo, etc. Why that comment box can't be on the homepage, I don't know...
My guess is that Chris probably hated blogs and blogging, but they do serve a purpose every now and then. I am not feeling very eloquent today, but was struck by a quote a friend of Chris' sent to Colin:
"I never have held death in contempt, though in the course of my explorations I have oftentimes felt that to meet one's fate on a noble mountain, or in the heart of a glacier, would be blessed as compared with death from disease, or from some shabby lowland accident. But the best death, quick and crystal-pure, set so glaringly open before us, is hard enough to face, even though we feel gratefully sure that we have already had happiness enough for a dozen lives."
