Postcard from Up North


Should you fall even fifty times a day, never on any account should that surprise or worry you. Instead, ever so gently set your heart back in the right direction. ~Saint Jane Frances de Chantal

(Morning mist rising off of Pickerel Lake. Gazing on gentle beauty encourages the gentle recalibration of the heart.)

    So beautiful!…
    You, too, have a beautiful smile. That fantastic smile only middle east people have.

    Breathtakingly beautiful–this resonates at the deepest part of one’s heart. And, thank you, Maureen, for the words from your heart–they give shape to the inchoate feelings such vistas invoke.
