Postcard from Up North

Adversity is like a strong wind. It tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that we see ourselves as we really are. ~ Arthur Golden

(Hulls in the marina boatyard, soon to find their home in strong wind here on the bay.)

    I always seems eerie to see boats out of the water. However, it won’t be long before they all return to the lake and peace will be restored.

    The sun shines and days lengthen; warm winds blow and anticipation stirs even in the most jaded heart. Life awaits!

    Maureen, you live inside metaphor–a true artist!

    I found you through Lana who’s nominated you for an award. I would be great to see these boats out on the water where they belong.
