Postcard from Up North

We call upon the waters that rim the earth, horizon to horizon, that flow in our rivers and streams, that fall upon our gardens and fields, and we ask that they teach us and show us the way. ~ Native American, Chinook Blessing Litany.

P.S. The water here really is all that. Read something extra on our water and more that I wrote for this week’s Harbor Light newspaper.

    Beautiful shot, Maureen. I miss those Lake Michigan days. Any Petoskey Stones in that water?
