"The world is not a lodging-house at Brighton, which we are to leave because it is miserable. It is the fortress of our family, with the flag flying on the turret, and the more miserable it is the less we should leave it."
-G. K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy
This here blog is a glimpse or two or three at the condition of the 'fortress of our family' through the eyes Timothy Goddard, a Christian writer with an unhealthy interest in politics living in the Puget Sound area.
Dreaming no longer Though it's no longer Christmas, I just spent the last half hour of that blessed holiday enjoying the first White Christmas I can remember experiencing. Spending every Christmas of your life in California or Washington will do that to you. It's not a lot of snow--it never is around here, and compared to the stuff I get out in Minnesota it's nothing at all. But it's somehow different, being here at home (the last Christmas this will be home), in a place where you never expect it to come, then looking out the door and seeing a carpet, albeit thin, of beautiful white. It's a good last minute gift, I think. A very good one.
