Lake notes


“Not every lake dreams to be an ocean.

Blessed are the ones who are happy with whom they are.”

― Mehmet Murat ildan


“Looking out over the lake, I felt enveloped in the most peaceful, loving utopia.”

― Laurie Kahn


“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in,

where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike.”

– John Muir, The Yosemite (1912).


“But in every walk with Nature one receives far more than he seeks.”

~John Muir, July 1877

  1. Beautiful photos, Florence. The lake images are so calming and peaceful, even in a photograph.
    I’m still meditating on your earlier post about crossing things off the to-do list. That’s so hard for us type-A folks.

    1. Hi Karen, I’m really glad you liked the photos. It was a calming and peaceful place. I remarked one day last week that I felt like I was finally remembering who I was. On a different note, those lists really can get the best of us. And I imagine your list is quite full these days! It’s really good to hear from you. I have your youngest in my prayers and you, as well.
