The Many Choices At Camp Runamuk

A FAMILY in Crescent Beach recently put up some signs welcoming the mischievous and playful into their temporarily transformed home called Camp Runamuk. Most children would surely enjoy having few restrictions in a house turned "cabin". As a grownup, the many signs in the alley nearby looked less like directions and more like a treasure trove of choices.

I could take a shower, walk down to the pier, skip on the beach, build sandcastles or visit the "outhouse" sooner rather than later.

Every second of every day there are choices to be made, from life-altering decisions to the picking and choosing from a mob of thoughts that are running amok in our heads.

A clever young girl named Anne Frank once wrote, "Our lives are fashioned by our choices. First we make our choices. Then our choices make us.”

This post is linked to SIGNS, SIGNS.

  1. Lots of help in finding things at Camp Runamuk!

  2. I'd love to have a sign post like that!

  3. most of the action is to the right

  4. I like the name of the camp but not sure I'd want to be in a camp that is runawmok. :)

  5. I love the name Camp Runamuk. That's a great bunch of signs they have there.

  6. The pole with many direction signs and the waving colorful cloths look inviting. I agree with Anne Frank; we are made of choices because our life consists of constant choices and consequences. I’m always marveled at your way how you bring food for thought out of a few of daily scenes.
