but we are all in the same boat.”

and what could
possibly go wrong
or incredibly right
with 8 adults, 6 kids, 2 cats, 1 dog
and an occasional bear
all back in one place again
on beautiful glen lake?

the very first ringing of the bell begins the holiday.
“softly the loud peal dies,
in passing winds it drowns,
but breathes, like perfect joys,
some of the grandies
near the bunk-bed room
still full of energy
after a long day
spent enjoying and exploring
the water and sand and gardens and lawn
way up north
on a warm and breezy
look at your feet. you are standing in the sky.
when we think of the sky, we tend to look up,
but the sky actually begins at the earth.
