Lindsay White and kiddos recently made a trek to play on the shores of Big Lake and play they did. Who says kids need all kinds of expensive toys and electronics to be entertained. Lindsay's little ones look like they were having a good time on the logs, running up and down the sand banks, posing for Mom and shining their best smiles, too. I bet they slept well that night, after breathing in all that fresh Lake Superior air.

Lindsay's last photo is one of those "Ahhhh" moments for many folks. It's the moment you get to Superior's shore, slip off your flip-flops and sink your toes in the sand. I'm guessing that the sand wasn't real warm this day, though, since the kids had their jackets on, but the coolness of the sand is a good feeling too, at least to me!

I love the pics today. I can't wait until the day I can take my grandkids to the Keweenaw. Of course, it would be great if their parents could come along, too. I can't think of a better place for a family vacation.

AWE...GREAT PHOTOS INDEED. Lindsay I love your last photo. It does inspire a very good feeling. There is nothing like Lake Superior vibes.

The Vision Alignment Project

A Vision for an Expanded View

We see a world where we are getting out of our towns and cities, long enough for us to gaze out across the broad vistas in the distance, to spend time listening to the wind blow, to watch the sun rise or set, to touch our bare feet to the Earth, to stare out at Lake Superior's (I fixed that part!) vastness, or to contemplate the stars in the nighttime sky.

Now, for periods of time, we are abandoning the routines that have confined us, and are expanding the horizons of our lives. We are remembering what it is like on the open road, on the mountain tops, on the empty beaches, and we are rekindling the sweet feelings of freedom - the freedom to do as whatever we want in the moment, the freedom to do nothing if we choose it, the freedom to venture inward, undistracted, and to gaze across the holy vistas of our own hearts and minds.

For, as we allow Great Nature to open up and lay bare the immensity of Her landscape before us, we are, at the same time, given glimpses of the bigger picture inside of us. It is this expansion that leads us to God and reveals the most magnificent views within.
I'm signed up for emails from the Vision Alignment and had to share this one...

I have been watching a live stream video of a robin and her 4 eggs. I can not wait til they hatch and see them fed worms.
