Repose

This is the view from where I sat last weekend. I'm looking at a cow that appears to be hiding behind the trees. I'm hearing a mixture of fish flopping, heron's hooting, and water splashing as I dig in with my oars. Nice sounds. I'm happy to be spending this peaceful time with my cousin Sonja, being reminded of childhood memories, hoping that our grandmother is smiling on our reunion.

What a pretty view and always nice to spend time with family. Glad you had a nice trip and I think all our grandma's are up there looking down on our lives - happy to see us happy.

Heather,
That is exactly how it looks on the lake I live on. I showed my friend your picture and she thought it was her kayak and a picture she took. It reminded both of us, how we needed to do that more often. When I first moved her, I was out there everyday, and it was so peaceful and relaxing. I don't think I went 1 or 2 times this whole summer! Your picture inspired me, and reminded me how important that quiet time is!
Love the photo! You can bet your Grandmother is watching down, and loving every second of your reconnection with your cousin!
XOXO
