A couple of months ago we had a really nice mini-vacation in a real log cabin in the woods in rural Illinois. In the cabin, they had a journal, which several visitors had written in over the past couple of years, and it was interesting to read all the various stories. A lot of them were simple “we had a lovely time in the woods” type of comments, but there were also some heart-warming ones, and you could tell from the handwriting that all ages had written in it.
This got me thinking about all the people that had stayed there and all the adventures that would have been pivoted in that simple journal entry. What leads up to them coming to the cabin, and would their future path be affected by this time in the woods?

But as I neared that final chapter, the story that Tony had revealed to me as we sat at this keyboard had changed. Slowly, inch by inch, it was moving away from that “wonderful” ending I had come up with. I have found that before, that something I really LIKE is fine, but it doesn’t fit where I expected it to. I couldn’t get from HERE to THERE.
