Postcard from Up North

If you seek a pleasant peninsula, look about you. ~ Motto of the State of Michigan

(Michigan became a state 175 years ago this week. “Michigan” is derived from the Indian michigama, meaning great or large lake. To you, Michigan, we say thank you.)

    “… I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
    I hear it in the deep heart’s core.”

    Beautiful photo, Lady of the lake.
