The whole scene had the feel of two strangers standing next to each other at a bus stop late at night. Both seem like descent guys so there is no need to be on guard or nervous.
I looked at him for at least a minute, marveling at the tiny details of his wings and body that I had never taken the time to notice on other dragonflies.

Billy's Sunday
Night Sermon

By: Chris Douglass

I exited the highway in a small town in western New York - the town shall remain nameless to protect the innocent. Suffice it to say it was within ten miles of a Wal-Mart - and stopped at the first bar I found. The Pats were about to put a hurtin' on the Bills and I couldn't resist watching this amongst New Yorkers.

Tumbledown Stone for Chris
Chris on Tumbledown December 2005

Our Mountain Man cousin, Scott Croteau. along with his lady, Jess, have spoken, and spoken a bit more with the folks overseeing the Tumbledown Mountain area. And now we have placed a Memorial stone on top of Tumbledown Mountain in honor of Chris' life, dreams and love of the Blue Mountains in Maine.

The Final Steps

On August 24th, 2008, the Douglass Family, Friends and Small World Treks  participated in a walk from Dixfield, Maine to Tumbledown Mountain.

As most of you know, On June 1st, 2008, Chris Douglass was to start an incredible journey that would take him from Bellvue, Colorado to Weld, Maine. A distance of over 2,100 miles!

He planned to walk the entire span, before the terrible crash that took his life.

In honor of Chris, we took the final steps of what would have been one of his greatest achievements, on the day that he was to do so. And a Stone was placed in honor of Chris on Tumbledown Mountain.

The World Is Smaller Than You Think!

These words were spoken to me by Chris amidst laughs as we discussed ideas for Small World Treks. Trying to think of a catchy phrase while encompassing what we wanted to show people, Chris muttered the words above, almost jokingly. As they began to sink in, we realized that he had just summed up what we had been discussing for weeks.
That the world is there for the taking, for those willing to reach out. And that it is not as difficult as most would believe.
Like so many times before, Chris had found the perfect words for the moment.

And now, more than ever, they mean so much.

So we find it fitting that on his memorial stone, to be forever affixed upon Tumbledown Mountain, these words boldly stand.
And now, the Chris Douglass Memorial Stone has been placed on Tumbledown Mountain, in honor of his amazing life!

Each smallest act of kindness reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away...
