We have four large lakes in our community. One of them is near our house and Lucy loves to play there along the water. In winter there are few people around so we can let her run to her heart's content. And run she does.
Smiling as she runs past the canoes
Still smiling when we made her rest for a bit on the handicapped fishing pier
Smiling as she runs along with her shadow
And backlit by the lake
A little trip to the lake fills Lucy's exercise needs and our own needs to embrace the beauty.

I try not to let the time change affect me so much and to follow John Muir's advice:
Our quote also comes from John Muir, a man who truly knew how to live:
"When we contemplate the whole globe as one great dewdrop,
Striped and dotted with continents and islands,
Flying through space with other stars all singing and shining together as one,
The whole universe appears as an infinite storm of beauty."
If only the people of the entire world could appreciate that we are all interconnected. We share the same resources and what hurts one hurts us all.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERYONE
BE A PART OF THE WHOLE GLOBE
