With Thanksgiving on the horizon again, I know I’m not alone in including the opportunity to have lived at Table Rock in my list of things I’m most thankful for. To those who can’t grasp why so many would feel such a strong connection to a place, a lifestyle and an incredibly diverse assortment of individuals, I can only say that you had to live it to understand it.
The bond may be strongest for those who were children there and knew the security of living in a community with a sense of family that encompassed not just our village but our neighbors in Wamsutter, too. One of those lucky individuals took the time to create a video comprised of family photos taken by Table Rockers that provides a small glimpse into our past as well as a heart-wrenching view of the deterioration of our home in the desert. For Table Rockers, it will bring some smiles and perhaps a tear. For anyone else, it may help illustrate the sense of nostalgia and gratitude we feel for our lives there. I’ve embedded the video at the bottom of this post.
Thanks, Kevin, for helping preserve the memories. Thanks to my own family for taking the Table Rock journey with me all those years ago. Last, but not least, thank you to my crazy, mixed-up Table Rock family for sharing a part of yourselves with me and my children. Best Wishes from me and mine for a safe and Happy Thanksgiving.
