Ecocentricity Blog: Our Gathering Place

One of our family’s gathering places is particularly special, because it connects everyone to Ray in a very meaningful way. We call it Lost Valley.

I think it is important for families to have gathering places. It may be as simple as your parents’ living room on Christmas morning. Some families might gather at a favorite restaurant every month or so. Others might have an annual vacation where everyone blocks out a whole week to go to the same beach the family has visited for decades.

Gathering places create memories and breed nostalgia. They put everyone at ease, offering a sense of familiarity and comfort that often eludes us in daily life. The bonds of a family grow stronger in gathering places.

Our family is blessed to have a number of wonderful gathering places. One is particularly special though, because it connects everyone in my family to Ray in a very meaningful way. We call it Lost Valley.
