the lake is my retreat.  and we are coming into the season that our friendship is the most active.  i can sit in the little lipping waves for hours, sifting through rocks looking for the gleam of pebble-softened glass.  a therapeutic hunt. but there is a magnetic draw even without the heat of summer.  she is our walking partner.  she calms me and and makes me happy.  ezra is just learning about her magical ways.  he's a little uncertain, not too sure about getting close.  but we walk along beside her every day and soon i hope he'll let her cool his feet. there is always a little thrill when the ice begins the crack and shift and open to the waves beneath.  for although there is power in her iciness, the stillness is disconcerting after a while.  i'm glad she's open and teeming, filling our little village in the city with her rhythm and energy. 


  1. Hello dear friend. I love that we are both here at the same time. I hope Ezra learns how good it can feel to cool his feet in the lake. I am so glad you found each other. Hope all is well and you all have a wonderful weekend.
