Notes from Cabin #3 
"We came to find ourselves once more 
to remember that what we need 
we have already in each other." 
"We used to come here as children 
now we have children 
and grandchildren of our own 
and we are still coming" 
"We are in on ' 70's 
and it makes a good honeymoon spot" 
"We loved each other tenderly 
and our fondness increased 
as we grew old." 
"I sat on the mocks, smoking, 
and hem reading to me 
in the pleasing wild." 
"Cassie found the notebooks 
and as she read 
years and faces came alive." 
"It has been good 
watching this plan unfold, 
creating wholeness 
in our life." 
Bruce Taylor 
note: The quoted material was selected from a series of "guestbooks"
dating
back to 
1937 found in a mental cabin in a small resort on the North Shone of Lake
Superior in 
1986. People were asked in the original notebook to write whatever they wanted,
and 
provide another when the current one was full.
