a lot, a lot, a lot
the river rose high
up and over
paths washed out
nice to intersect
where the land met the water
with this very happy dad
following his wife and son
making their way
through what was very recently
a grassy playground
on island park
paddling through to the river
“ever think you’d find yourself paddling here?”
“no, but i’m so, so happy that i am!”
“celebrate the success of others. high tide floats all ships.”
-susan elizabeth phillips
on the edge of the atlantic ocean
such an easy place to ponder and wander
“the mind has no existence by itself;
it is only the glitter of the sun on the surface of the waters.”

morning has broken on the great bay.
“for whatever we lose (like a you or a me),
It’s always our self we find in the sea.”
great bay, portsmouth, new hampshire
headed off on a family fun river raft float trip
not real relaxing as expected
but lots of adventures/misadventures instead
so many laughs and we all survived
who could ask for anything more?
“rejoice as summer should…chase away sorrows by living.”

word has it the littles are headed to england.
hopefully they’re back in the states
in time for the first day of school today.
“you can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.”
glen lake, empire, michigan – summer 2018
the process of an electron releasing a photon of light (energy)
and falling back down to a lower energy level.
on traverse bay, michigan, usa – summer 2018
kinders dig to the other side of the world and find water.
