A Little Piece of Paradise

Posted on: May 27, 2010

  • Waves crashing on ginormous rocks is soothing.
  • Mother Nature is truly all powerful.
  • Karma is the real deal, baby.
  • Fog on a beach is magical and captivating.
  • Seagulls can be cool. So long as they stay out of rock throwing distance. For me that means about 3 feet.
  • Knitting doesn’t happen when you have a view of Lake Superior outside your door that is continually changing. Neither does reading.
  • Unpaved roads while riding one’s bike can be j-j-j-jaring…but the view of the lake next to you is worth the teeth rattling.
  • Lakers are not as close to the shore as you think. Incredibly impressive in size.
  • Storm clouds passing overhead are meant to be looked at, and their formations will surprise you with meaning. Not to mention move you – not physically – but mentally and emotionally.
  • The smell of pine trees is intoxicating.
  • Winding roads are hillier than you think. My legs would tell you that. If they could talk. Which they can’t. But if they could, they would. Uffda.
  • Friends are a genuinely, necessary part of life. Find them. Learn from them. Appreciate them.
  • Slabs of rock the size of cars are fabulous places to relax on.
  • Campfires, friends, dogs, Austrian’s – “yup”, s’mores, scotch, champagne, rock finding, conversation, dark chocolate covered caramels with sea salt, Highlander Grogg, cinnamon almonds, forgiveness, pepperjack cheese omelettes made with fresh eggs, cheese curds, fog, sunrises, letting go, singing out of tune, sunsets, fresh air, thunderstorms, beaches. It’s all good, my friends.
  • Agates rock.

where in the UP were you??

Hey Leslie dralin’ – I was just north of Duluth, in Knife River. My view from the cabin I rented was Lake Superior and Knife Island. I played every single day on the rocky beach. Found some cool rocks too. Oh, and sunburned the tips of my ears. Ouch. 🙂

Ah, serenity – ain’t it grand? What a fabulous place.

Hey Kitten –

It was seriously, truly amazing. Everyone should experience this kind of trip at some point in their life.

The rose pictures on your blog, by the way, are beautiful. 🙂

Looks gorgeous. So pleased you surrendered to it and enjoyed the break.
Hey Patty – I’m thinking of coming to the USA in Aug/Sept… up for a few days in NY or maybe back at the lake?
I will be in touch.
Lots of love to you.

Cool – how exciting! I think you need to come to Minnesota and experience the place I was up at. So beautiful – takes about 3 hours to get there but if you check out my pictures at flickr, you’ll see it’s totally worth it. Yes, let’s touch base and figure it out. August is better for me only because I’m assuming I’ll be working by September. Or maybe not, I have not idea. 🙂

Love and hugs to you too!
