Sometimes the most urgent thing you can possibly do is take a complete rest
-Ashleigh Brilliant

My family and I have just returned from an extended road trip during which my internet access was extremely limited. I had planned to complete the series on fear and isolation and provide some posts in advance for my time on the road, but I was much busier than expected during the preceding weeks preparing for my absence. I expect to be rather busy catching up this week but plan to resume daily posts.

In the meantime, here are some pictures from our trip:

Tristen and me strolling through Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona.

April and Tristen taking a break.

Too sleepy to eat a cookie.

Strolling through a desert garden.

75ºF and sunny in Phoenix, AZ. (Our home town was experiencing -10ºF with -40ºF wind chills.)

Our travel weary toddler.

Our welcome home blizzard.


About the author


I am Danny Kohn, writer and designer for this site and owner, software engineer and consultant for Inspirations Software Design. My three greatest passions in life are sharing time with my family, software design and sharing inspiration with others. I have the incredible privilege of being able to spend a significant amount of time every day doing each of those three things. I am a single father of Tristen, our 6 year old son. It has been such an incredible joy to watch him grow up and learn so much. Everything he does and says overwhelms me with adoration. We have a wonderful evening ritual of reading books together in a beanbag chair. Nearly every night, we have a laughing attack together. I smile and giggle constantly in his presence and feel truly inspired.

    Looks like you all had quite an adventure!

    We just thawed out from a major ice storm here, too. I think you picked the perfect time to head for warmer temps.

    Yes it was! It has been a harsh winter. Taking a short break in the southwestern sun makes the winter much easier to bear.

    I can’t wait to see more pictures. We have missed all of you!
