Loosened from the mud, I find myself floating in a world of possibility.

So can you.

my, my, my what a beautiful world

We're here on the North Shore of Minnesota, on Lake Superior, Gitchi Gummi.  I'm in the condo right now listening to Colin Hay and feeling fine.

This is a mini vacation, a scouting trip of sorts with my parents who are in from Florida.  We all have been on our best behaviour.  D had to postpone at the last minute due to some shocking developments at his workplace.  He'll be joining us tomorrow evening.  My parents are settled in a condo a few doors down from me and the Little Lotus Bud.  And I have the evening to myself.  I love it.  I can do what I want, listen to the music that I want, sit up all night reading if I want or just go to bed early.

I don't think I've ever been on the North Shore in the summertime.  Sure I've been up here plenty to camp but never right on the Lake.  I can't go to bed early.  I have to absorb all the goodness and beauty around. The light was light until at least 10 pm.  I can have all the window open and snuggle into bed later.  But for now I want to just absorb, to soak in the glory that is summertime, the cool of the lakeshore air, the smell of a wood fire.

My, my, my what a beautiful world.



  1. Beautiful. So much peace in these photos and narrative.

  2. It is really so beautiful up there. My parents actually are moving up to Duluth from Memphis in the next couple of months.

  3. Thank you, my friends. The Lake is a indeed a wonder of beauty.

    Kat - I am full of envy that your parents are moving to Duluth! Maybe, just maybe, we will find a property for us that suits our lifestyle and our budget.
